SPACE STATION CREWS TAKE QUESTIONS FROM ORBIT

     The incoming and outgoing residents of the International 
Space Station will speak to reporters during a space-to-ground 
news conference Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. EDT. The event will air 
live on NASA TV.

The crews will field questions from reporters at NASA's 
Johnson Space Center, Houston, Kennedy Space Center, Fla., and 
Headquarters, Washington, as well as from media at the Russian 
Mission Control Center in Korolev, near Moscow.

The Expedition 10 crew, Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight 
Engineer Salizhan Sharipov, arrived at the Station early 
Saturday. They will replace the outgoing Expedition 9 crew, 
Commander Gennady Padalka and Flight Engineer Mike Fincke, who 
are heading home after a six-month mission. Russian Space 
Forces Test Cosmonaut Yuri Shargin joined Chiao and Sharipov 
for their flight to the Station. He returns to Earth with 
Padalka and Fincke on Saturday.
