EXPEDITION FIVE BACKUP CREWMEMBER NAMED TO EXPEDITION SEVEN

     Russian cosmonaut Alexander Kaleri has been named to 
replace Sergei Moschenko as a prime crewmember for Expedition 
Seven. Kaleri joins astronaut Ed Lu and Russian cosmonaut 
Yuri Malenchenko in training for the long-term increment 
aboard the International Space Station next year.

Kaleri was a member of the backup crew for Expedition Five, 
currently returning home aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour. He's 
also a veteran cosmonaut, having lived aboard the Russian 
Space Station Mir during three separate long-term missions: 
145 days in 1992, 197 days in 1996 and 73 days in 2000. 

Russian officials proposed the crew change to the 
Multilateral Crew Operations Panel, and the Panel approved 
the action on October 10, 2002.
