NASA SETS BRIEFING TO PREVIEW SPACE STATION SPACEWALK

HOUSTON -- NASA managers will discuss an upcoming spacewalk at the 
International Space Station during a news briefing at 2 p.m. EDT on 
Tuesday, Aug. 3.

Expedition 24 Flight Engineers Doug Wheelock and Tracy Caldwell Dyson 
are scheduled to perform a 6.5-hour spacewalk on Aug. 5. The two NASA 
astronauts will outfit the Russian Zarya module for future robotics 
work and prepare the station for the installation of a new U.S. 
permanent multipurpose module.

The news briefing on the spacewalk will take place at NASA's Johnson 
Space Center in Houston. It will air live on NASA Television and the 
agency's Web site. Journalists may ask questions from participating 
NASA locations, including Kennedy Space Center, Fla.

The briefers are:
- Dan Hartman, Integration and Mission Operations manager, 
International Space Station Program
- Courtenay McMillan, Expedition 24 spacewalk flight director

NASA TV coverage of the spacewalk will begin at 5 a.m. on Aug. 5. 
Wheelock and Caldwell Dyson are expected to begin the spacewalk from 
the Quest airlock at 5:55 a.m. It will be Wheelock's fourth spacewalk 
and Caldwell Dyson's first.
