SPACE STATION CREW MEDIA EVENTS
The two crews of astronauts and cosmonauts, sharing time 
aboard the International Space Station, will take questions 
from reporters Thursday, Oct. 23 at 11 a.m. EDT.
The space-to-ground news conference will last about 20 
minutes. Because of limited time, only reporters at NASA's 
Johnson Space Center, Houston, NASA's Kennedy Space Center, 
Fla., and the Russian Mission Control Center near Moscow will 
be able to ask questions. The entire event will be carried 
live on NASA Television.
The event takes place during the crew transition on board the 
Space Station. The Expedition 7 crew, Russian cosmonaut Yuri 
Malenchenko and NASA astronaut Ed Lu, are handing over command of the
Station to the Expedition 8 crew, NASA astronaut 
Michael Foale and cosmonaut Alexander Kaleri. Expedition 8 
will spend approximately six months in orbit. Spanish astronaut Pedro
Duque is also aboard the Station on a research mission for the European
Space Agency. Duque made the outbound trip with Expedition 8 on Oct. 18
and will return to Earth with Expedition 7 on Oct. 27.
NASA TV will carry the official change-of-command ceremony 
Oct. 24. Live coverage begins at 2 p.m. EDT. These two events 
are part of the coverage of the Expedition 7/8 Space Station 
crew exchange. Coverage runs through Oct. 30.
NASA TV is available on AMC-9, transponder 9C, C-Band, located at 85
degrees west longitude. The frequency is 3880.0 MHz. Polarization is
vertical, and audio is monaural at 6.80 MHz.
