NASA MANAGERS AVAILABLE TO DISCUSS
RECENTLY APPROVED SPACE STATION CREW CRITERIA

     The International Space Station partners have approved 
criteria for crewmembers visiting the orbiting space 
laboratory and NASA managers are available tomorrow to discuss 
the certification process.

The space station partnership approved the "Principles 
Regarding Processes and Criteria for Selection, Assignment, 
Training and Certification of ISS (Expedition and Visiting) 
Crewmembers" and the space station's Multilateral Coordination 
Board adopted the proposal earlier this month.

W. Michael Hawes, Deputy Associate Administrator for Space 
Station, and Charles J. Precourt, Chief, Astronaut Office, 
will be available by telephone Jan. 31 from 3:30 p.m. to
 4:30 p.m. EST to answer questions regarding the space station 
crew criteria. 

Reporters who would like to participate in the teleconference 
should contact Dwayne Brown at 202/358-1726, Debra Rahn at 
202/358-1638 or the NASA Headquarters Newsroom at 202/358-1600 
by 4:30 p.m. EST today to make arrangements. 

The document citing the crew selection, assignment, training 
and certification criteria for the International Space Station 
will be available Thursday at 10 a.m. EST on the Internet at:
