With the current International Space Station crew
marking 100 days in space this past weekend, NASA managers
are scheduled to discuss the crew’s recent and upcoming
activities during a briefing, Thursday, June 21 at 3 p.m.

The briefing will cover recent activities with the station’s
Canadarm2 robotic arm, the crew’s preparation for upcoming
visits by Space Shuttle crews, scientific research on the
station and the homestretch of the crew’s five-month flight.

Station Commander Yury Usachev and Flight Engineers Jim Voss
and Susan Helms are scheduled to return to Earth in mid-
August aboard a Space Shuttle, which also will bring a new
crew to the station.

Participants in the briefing will be Flight Director John
Curry and Increment Two Scientist John Uri.

Houston, TX, will be carried live on NASA Television and will
feature multi-center question and answer capability from
participating NASA centers.
