NASA SETS BRIEFING WITH NEXT STATION CREW, SPACEFLIGHT PARTICIPANT

HOUSTON - NASA will hold a media briefing at 10:15 a.m. CST Dec. 13 
with members of the next International Space Station crew, Expedition 
15, and a U.S. businessman who will visit the complex in spring 2007. 


The briefing will originate from NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston, 
and broadcast live on NASA Television. Media may ask questions from 
participating NASA locations. 

The briefing will include:

- Expedition 15 Commander and Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin
- Expedition 15 Flight Engineer, Soyuz Commander and Russian cosmonaut 
Oleg Kotov
- Expedition 15 Flight Engineer and NASA astronaut Clay Anderson
- Expedition 15 Flight Engineer and NASA astronaut Dan Tani
- Spaceflight Participant Charles Simonyi, who will fly to the station 
under a commercial agreement with the Russian Federal Space Agency.

On Dec. 14, Yurchikhin, Kotov, Anderson and Tani also will be 
available for individual round-robin interviews in person at Johnson 
or by phone. To participate in those interviews, media should contact 
the Johnson newsroom, 281-483-5111, no later than 3 p.m. Dec. 13. 

Yurchikhin, Kotov and Simonyi will travel to the station aboard a 
Soyuz spacecraft. Eleven days later, Simonyi will return to Earth 
aboard a Soyuz with two members of the Expedition 14 crew.

Space shuttles will transport Anderson and Tani to the station later 
in the year. Anderson has a seat on shuttle Endeavour's STS-118 
mission, targeted for launch next June. Tani will replace Anderson a 
few months later when he arrives aboard shuttle Atlantis on its 
STS-120 mission.
