SPACE STATION CREW TAKES A SOYUZ RIDE TUESDAY

     The residents of the International Space Station will take a short 
ride in their Soyuz spacecraft on Tuesday, July 19. NASA TV will carry 
the trip live, starting at 6 a.m. EDT.

Expedition 11 Commander Sergei Krikalev and Flight Engineer John 
Phillips will leave the Station at 6:35 a.m. EDT, Tuesday. They will 
undock the Soyuz capsule from the Pirs Docking Compartment and fly a 
few feet to re-dock on the Zarya Module at approximately 7:11 a.m. EDT. 

The re-docking will allow the crew to use the Pirs for a spacewalk in 
August. Krikalev and Phillips are in the third month of a planned six-
month mission. On Aug. 16, Krikalev will surpass the record for most 
cumulative time spent in space by any person, having accumulated more 
than 749 days on six space flights.
