NEXT SPACE STATION SPACEWALK ON NASA TV FRIDAY

     The fourth and final spacewalk planned for the current 
residents of the International Space Station (ISS) will air 
live on NASA TV starting at 11:30 a.m. EDT Friday, Sept. 3.

In the fifth month of a six-month flight, Expedition 9 
Commander Gennady Padalka and Flight Engineer/NASA ISS 
Science Officer Mike Fincke will begin their venture outside 
about 12:50 p.m. EDT. They will wear Russian spacesuits and 
exit the ISS Pirs Docking Compartment airlock to work on the 
exterior of the Zvezda living quarters module.

Spending almost six hours outside, Padalka and Fincke will 
continue outfitting the Zvezda with navigation aids for a new 
ISS supply spacecraft called the European Automated Transfer 
Vehicle. The new cargo ship is scheduled for its first flight 
in 2005. The crew will also install various other new 
components on Zvezda.

The spacewalk is the fifth of Padalka's career and Fincke's 
fourth.
