SPACE STATION CREWS BRIEF MEDIA ON NASA TV

The NASA astronauts, Russian cosmonauts and spaceflight participant 
aboard the International Space Station will participate in a news 
conference at 9:25 a.m. EDT Friday, Sept. 22. The event will be 
broadcast live on NASA TV.

Reporters may ask questions from NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston; 
Kennedy Space Center, Fla.; and NASA Headquarters in Washington 
during the 20-minute conference. Media interested in participating 
should contact their preferred NASA location by 5 p.m. EDT Thursday.

Members of the 14th crew of the station, Expedition 14 Commander and 
NASA astronaut Mike Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer and Russian 
cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, docked their Soyuz spacecraft at the 
station early Wednesday. With them is Spaceflight Participant 
Anousheh Ansari, a U.S. businesswoman visiting the complex for eight 
days under a commercial agreement with the Russian Federal Space 
Agency.

The new arrivals were greeted by the 13th station crew, Expedition 13 
Commander Pavel Vinogradov, Flight Engineer Jeff Williams and 
European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Reiter. Vinogradov and 
Williams have been on the station since March. Reiter joined them in 
July, arriving on the Space Shuttle Discovery. Vinogradov, Williams 
and Ansari will undock from the station and land Sept. 28. Reiter 
will remain aboard, joining Lopez-Alegria and Tyurin for Expedition 
14.

The station news conference may be rescheduled if the shuttle 
Atlantis' Thursday landing is delayed until Friday. For NASA TV
