SPACEWALK COVERAGE ON NASA TV -- UPDATED COVERAGE TIME


Expedition Six Commander Ken Bowersox, Flight Engineer 
Nikolai Budarin and NASA Space Station Science Officer Don 
Pettit arrived on the Station aboard the space Shuttle 
Endeavour Nov. 25 for their four-month mission.

Bowersox and Budarin will conduct a 6 1/2-hour spacewalk on 
Dec. 12. They will exit out of the Quest Airlock to install 
the newly delivered Port One (P1) Truss segment and to 
conduct other work to prepare components for future assembly 
flights. It will be the first time a Russian cosmonaut wears 
a U.S. spacesuit out of Quest.

The spacewalk will begin at approximately 9:30 a.m. EST on 
Dec. 12, and it will be covered on NASA TV with commentary 
and available downlink television. Coverage begins at 8 a.m. 
EST.

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