NOTE TO EDITORS:

This is a summary of recent activities to extend the orbital life

of Skylab.

NASA has successfully placed America's 77,111-kilogram (85-ton),

36-meter (liS-foot) long space station, Skylab, in an orbital position

which hopefully will give it a "new lease on life."

A team of engineers and controllers from the Johnson Space Center,

Houston, Texas; Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama;

IBM and three tracking stations -- Bermuda; Madrid, Spain; and

Goldstone, California -- have completed a four-month plan of scheduled

events to stabilize and trim the orbital position of Skylab.
