NASA officials will discuss plans for the first spacewalk by an
International Space Station crew during a briefing on Thursday, June 7,
at 2 p.m. EDT, from the Johnson Space Center, Houston.

Briefing participants will include flight director John Curry, space
walk officer Cindy Begley and scientist John Uri.

Station Commander Yury Usachev and Flight Engineer Jim Voss will perform
an internal spacewalk beginning at 10:30 a.m. EDT, Friday June 8. The
planned 35-minute spacewalk, will relocate a station component in
preparation for the arrival of a future Russian component. An internal
spacewalk involves an astronaut working inside a component exposed to
the vacuum of space, but not venturing outside a spacecraft.

NASA TV coverage of the spacewalk will begin at 10 a.m. EDT Friday;
however, no live television of the spacewalk is expected. The briefing
will be carried live on NASA Television with multi-center question-and-
answer capability from participating NASA centers.

NASA Television is available on GE-2, Transponder 9C at 85 degrees West
longitude, vertical polarization, with a frequency of 3880 MHz, and
audio of 6.8 MHz.
