Busy Stay on Tap for Expedition Five
Expedition Five Commander Valery Korzun and Flight Engineers Peggy
Whitson and Sergei Treschev are scheduled to have a busy tour of duty
onboard the International Space Station. After STS-111 departs, four
spacecraft -- two shuttles and two Russian Progress cargo ships -- are
slated to visit the station, and two Expedition Five spacewalks are on
tap. The first shuttle flight is STS-112, which will deliver the S1 Truss
to the station in August. Then, STS-113 is scheduled to deliver the P1
Truss and the Expedition Six crew to the orbital outpost in mid-October. 

Science operations will continue during Expedition Five's stay. There
will be a total of 24 new and continuing science investigations -- 10
human life sciences studies, six in microgravity, five in space product
development and three sponsored by the Office of Space Flight.
