NASA TV AIRS SHUTTLE CREW MEDIA SESSION AND SPACEWALK THURSDAY

WASHINGTON - Two human spaceflight events will air simultaneously on 
separate NASA Television digital channels Thursday, Feb. 22. 

At 5 a.m. EST(1000 GMT) two crew members of the International Space Station 
will begin the fourth spacewalk in the last three weeks. During the 
six-hour spacewalk, Expedition 14 Commander Michael Lopez Alegria and 
Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin will work to free a stuck antenna on 
the Progress 23 supply spacecraft. Coverage of the spacewalk on NASA 
TV's public, education and media channels begins at 4 a.m.(0900 GMT) 

The media Channel will break away temporarily from the spacewalk 
coverage to air a question and answer session between reporters and 
the STS-117 crew at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., at 7:40 a.m. 
The crew will be in Florida to participate in the launch countdown 
dress rehearsal, known as the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test. 
The shuttle crew includes Commander Rick Sturckow, Pilot Lee 
Archambault and Mission Specialists Patrick Forrester, Steven 
Swanson, John "Danny" Olivas and Jim Reilly.

Coverage of the spacewalk will continue uninterrupted on the public 
channel and will resume on the media channel immediately following 
the shuttle crew event.
