NASA TV TO COVER NEXT EXPEDITION FOUR SPACEWALK

The second spacewalk by members of the Expedition Four crew aboard the
International Space Station will be covered on  NASA Television beginning
at 10 a.m. EST Friday, Jan. 25.

Commander Yury Onufrienko and Flight Engineer Dan Bursch will exit the
Pirs Docking Compartment around 10:35 a.m. EST for a six-hour spacewalk
to install protective covers around thrusters on the Russian Zvezda
Service Module. The crew will also attach additional antennas for future
amateur radio  operations. 

Flight Engineer Carl Walz, who conducted a spacewalk with Onufrienko last
week, will operate the space station's robotic 
arm - Canadarm2 - from inside and will serve as spacewalk choreographer.

One more spacewalk is planned during the five-month Expedition Four
mission when Walz and Bursch will exit the U.S. Airlock 
Quest next month to preposition equipment that will be used during the
installation of the S0 (S Zero) Truss on the ISS in 
April by the STS-110 crew.

SPACE STATION EXPEDITION BRIEFING SET THURSDAY

     The progress of the fourth expedition to the International Space
Station will be discussed during a Mission Status Briefing beginning at 2
p.m. EST, Thursday, 
from NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. The news conference will air
live on NASA Television.

Mission officials will offer an update on activities aboard the space
station and upcoming events, including Friday's 
spacewalk by Commander Yury Onufrienko and Flight Engineer Dan Bursch.

Along with Flight Engineer Carl Walz, Onufrienko and Bursch are in the

the orbiting complex.
