Overview
Expedition Three to Expand Space Station Scientific Research
The third trio of space travelers to live and work aboard the International Space Station(ISS) will be launched aboard the shuttle Discovery in August on the STS-105 mission andwill return to Earth in December aboard Endeavour. Their four-month expedition will behighlighted by the extension of scientific research and the addition of a new Russiandocking port to the expanding complex.Expedition Three will be commanded by veteran U.S. Astronaut Frank Culbertson, 52, aretired Navy captain who flew on two previous shuttle missions and served as manager ofthe Shuttle-Mir Program. That program was the first phase of the buildup leading to theassembly of the ISS. Shuttles docked to the Russian space station Mir and sevenAmerican astronauts lived and worked on that outpost during that so-called Phase One.Culbertson is joined on Expedition Three by Pilot Vladimir Dezhurov, 39, a lieutenantcolonel in the Russian Air Force who commanded the Mir during a 115-day mission inwhich he hosted Astronaut Dr. Norm Thagard, the first American to live on the Russianstation. Dezhurov, Thagard and cosmonaut Gennady Strekalov returned to Earth on July 7,1995, on the STS-71 mission of Atlantis. It was the first shuttle flight to link up to the Mir,which delivered a replacement crew of cosmonauts.Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin, 41, rounds out the crew. Tyurin will be making his firstflight on Expedition Three as a researcher and flight engineer representing RSC-Energia.After replacing Expedition Two crewmembers Yury Usachev, Jim Voss and Susan Helmsduring the STS-105 mission in August, Culbertson, Dezhurov and Tyurin will begin toactivate new racks of experiments which are being delivered to the station in the LeonardoMultipurpose Logistics Module. They also will prepare for the arrival of the fifth in a series ofProgress resupply vehicles less than two weeks into their stay on orbit. A sixth Progresswill arrive at the ISS with supplies, food and fuel in mid-November.In mid-September, the Russian Docking Compartment will be launched on a Soyuz rocketfrom the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan for an automated linkup to the nadir, orearthward facing, docking port on the Zvezda Service Module. Once it arrives, the 16-foot-long, 8,090-pound module built by RSC-Energia will serve as an additional docking port forvisiting Soyuz and Progress craft, and as an airlock from which Russian segmentspacewalks can be conducted.
