NASA TELEVISION PROVIDES STATION SPACEWALK COVERAGE

NASA Television will provide live coverage and commentary of the second 
spacewalk to be conducted by the Expedition Five crew aboard the 
International Space Station early Monday, beginning at 12:30 a.m. EDT on 
August 26.

Commentary will originate from the International Space Station flight 
control room at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, with available 
downlink television from cameras on the Station's Canadarm2 robotic arm.

The six-hour spacewalk by Commander Valery Korzun and Flight Engineer 
Sergei Treschev will include the change out of experiments measuring 
residue emitted from jet thrusters located on the Zvezda living quarters 
module, refresh Japanese experiments measuring the effect of the space 
environment on a variety of engineering materials and installation of 
hardware to facilitate ISS assembly spacewalks in the future.

The first spacewalk of the expedition by Korzun and Flight Engineer 
Peggy Whitson on August 16 included the installation of six 
micrometeoroid debris shields on Zvezda.

NASA TV can be found on GE-2, Transponder 9C, vertical polarization at 
85 degrees West longitude, 3880 MHz, with audio at 6.8 MHz.
