EXP 5 STATUS REPORT 6/16/2002



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR - N1ORC

Expedition Five Commander Valery Korzun and Flight Engineers Peggy
Whitson and Sergei Treschev spent their first full day alone on the
International Space Station today. There are no timelined activities. The
crew will enjoy light duty and will continue to settle into their new
home. 

The Expedition Five crew arrived at the station June 7 on Space Shuttle
Endeavour and is beginning a tour of duty that is scheduled to last until
mid-October. 

Endeavour undocked from the station Saturday, and its crew, which
includes Expedition Four, performed landing preparations Sunday.
Endeavour is slated to touch down at 11:59 a.m. CDT (1659 GMT) Monday at
Kennedy Space Center, Fla.

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. 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.
