INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION EXPEDITION SIX SPACEWALK 
POSTPONED; TUESDAY MISSION STATUS BRIEFING CANCELLED

     The spacewalk scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 12, 2002 
from the International Space Station has been postponed. As 
a result, the status briefing planned to discuss the 
upcoming extravehicular activity (EVA), at 2 p.m. EST, 
Tuesday, Dec. 10, from NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston, 
has been cancelled.

Postponement of the EVA, planned for Expedition Six 
Commander Ken Bowersox and Flight Engineer Nikolai Budarin, 
does not impact Expedition Six objectives, or the operations 
of the Station. The planned EVA tasks included outfitting 
the recently delivered Port 1 (P1) station truss segment and 
performing "get-ahead" tasks in preparation for the arrival 
of the next station truss segment, scheduled for launch in 
May 2003.

Planning of the next spacewalk is underway, however it is 
not anticipated to occur before January 2003.
