SPACE STATION SPACEWALK PREVIEWED 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, Feb. 14, 
from NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. 

The briefing will be broadcast on NASA Television with 
question-and-answer capability for reporters from other NASA 
centers.

Mission managers will offer an update on activities aboard the 
space station, including a spacewalk Feb. 20 by Flight 
Engineers Carl Walz and Dan Bursch out of the Quest Airlock. 
This will be the first use of the station's airlock since July 
2001 and sets the stage for four spacewalks out of Quest to 
attach the first of several large truss segments to the 
complex during a space shuttle mission scheduled for early 
April.

Walz, Bursch and Commander Yury Onufrienko are in the third 
month of a planned five-month stay aboard the orbiting 
research laboratory.

Participants for Thursday's briefing include:
*  Sally Davis, Lead Stage Flight Director
*  Susan Brand, Expedition Four Increment Manager
*  John Uri, Expedition Four Increment Scientist
*  Dina Barclay, Expedition Four EVA Officer

NASA Television is available on GE-2, Transponder 9C at 85 
degrees West longitude, vertical polarization, with a 
frequency of 3880 MHz, and audio of 6.8 MHz.
