************ NEWS RELEASES ************ SPACE STATION CREW TO WELCOME FIRST VISITORS; SPREAD ITS WINGS FOR POWER The International Space Station crew, its first space visitors, and activities that will create the most powerful spacecraft in history will all be the subject of a series of briefings starting at 9 a.m. EST, Monday, Nov. 13, at NASA's Johnson Space Center, Houston, TX. During the next mission aboard a space shuttle, astronauts will connect a package of giant solar arrays and associated electronics, batteries, radiators and support structure to the station. The U.S.-developed, 240-foot long arrays will generate a level of electricity that could power 30 average Earth homes, and will be the first of three such sets of arrays that will be attached to the station in coming years.
