NASA Spacewalk Previews Reset For Tuesday
The first spacewalk for the International Space Station Expedition 9 crew is being rescheduled to no earlier than Friday, June 25. A briefing to preview the spacewalk that was set for today has been postponed until tomorrow. It's now scheduled for 4 p.m. EDT Tuesday, June 22.

Station managers reviewed all spacewalk preparations today in a Stage Operations Readiness Review and found no technical or operational concerns. However, Russian space officials asked for additional time to discuss programmatic topics.

The Tuesday briefing from NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston, will be broadcast live on NASA Television. Reporters at participating NASA centers will be able to ask questions.

NASA Television is available on AMC-9, transponder 9C, C-Band, at 85 degrees west longitude. The frequency is 3880.0 MHz. Polarization is vertical. Audio is monaural at 6.80 MHz. For information about NASA TV and EVA live webcast, visit:
