NASA TV LIVE COVERAGE OF SPACE STATION SOYUZ RELOCATION

     The International Space Station (ISS) crew will take a 
short ride around the block next week, as they fly their 
Soyuz spacecraft from one docking port to another. NASA TV 
will carry the maneuver live starting at 4 a.m. EST, Monday 
Nov. 29.

At 4:29 a.m. EST, ISS Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov, the 
Soyuz Commander, will undock the spacecraft from the 
Station's Pirs Docking Compartment. Sharipov and ISS 
Expedition 10 Commander and NASA Station Science Officer 
Leroy Chiao will fly the Soyuz to a nearby docking port on 
the Station's Zarya module, arriving at about 5 a.m. EST.

The repositioning of the Soyuz will clear Pirs, which also 
serves as an airlock for spacewalks, for a pair of spacewalks 
planned by Chiao and Sharipov early next year.

continental U.S. on AMC-6, Transponder 9C, C-Band, at 72
