Mission Objectives

The Expedition Five crew took charge of ISS operations on June 7 2002. An official ceremony between Expedition crews took place June 10, with the ceremonial ringing of the station's brass bell, symbolizing the transfer of command. The Expedition Five crew carried out approximately 25 new investigations onboard the ISS, as well as continued with various science investigations begun before their stay. The crew wrapped up a 185-day stay in space when they returned home on STS-113 December 7 2002.

Space Shuttle Endeavour delivered the Expedition 5 crew during mission STS-111 which launched June 5 2002. The fifth crew to live aboard the International Space Station was led by Russian Valery Korzun and joined by fellow Cosmonaut Sergei Treshchev and U.S. Astronaut Peggy A. Whitson, both flight engineers. While onboard, Dr. Whitson was named NASA's first ISS Science Officer by NASA Administrator O'Keefe.


The Expedition Five crewmembers conducted two spacewalks during their stay at the International Space Station. Both were based out of the Pirs Docking Compartment.

Spacewalk 1

Valery Korzun, Peggy Whitson
Actual time: 4 hours, 25 minutes
Actual start time: 4:23 a.m. CDT (0923 GMT) 16 August 2002
Actual end time: 8:48 a.m. CDT (1348 GMT) 16 August 2002

Korzun and Whitson installed six debris panels onto the Zvezda Service Module. They removed the panels from their temporary location on the station's Pressurized Mating Adapter 1 prior to attachment to Zvezda. The panels are designed to shield Zvezda from potential space debris impacts. A total of 23 shields will eventually be installed onto the Service Module.

Korzun and Whitson were scheduled to install new hardware on the Russian Kromka experiment, but due to the late start of the spacewalk, Russian flight controllers decided to move the task to a future extravehicular activity. Kromka measures residue emissions from Zvezda's jet thrusters.

This was the 42nd station spacewalk and the 17th based from the orbital outpost.

Spacewalk 2

Valery Korzun, Sergei Treshchev
Actual time: 5 hours, 21 minutes
Actual start time: 12:27 a.m. CDT (0527 GMT) 26 August 2002
Actual end time: 5:48 a.m. CDT (1048 GMT) 26 August 2002

During Expedition Five's second spacewalk, Korzun and Treshchev installed a frame on the outside of the Zarya Module to house components for future spacewalk assembly tasks. They installed new material samples on a pair of Japanese Space Agency materials exposure experiments housed on the outside of Zvezda. Korzun and Treshchev also installed devices on Zvezda that will simplify the routing of tethers during future assembly spacewalks. They improved future station amateur radio operations by adding two ham radio antennas on Zvezda.

Also, Korzun and Treshchev installed the Kromka hardware that was originally slated to take place during Expedition Five's first spacewalk. Kromka measures residue emissions from Zvezda's jet thrusters.

This was the 43rd station spacewalk and the 18th based from the orbital outpost.
