NASA TV COVERAGE OF ISS SUPPLY-CRAFT DEPARTURE, ARRIVAL

     NASA Television will broadcast the undocking of a 
Russian Progress supply vehicle from the International Space 
Station (ISS) and the arrival of a new Progress craft to the 
station on Tuesday, March 19, and Sunday, March 24.

The Progress 6 vehicle, which delivered supplies to the ISS 
late last year, will undock at 12:43 p.m. EST Tuesday, March 
19, with commentary and coverage on NASA TV beginning at 
12:30 p.m.

Two days later, on March 21, the seventh Progress dedicated 
to outfitting and supplying the station with food, clothing 
and other equipment, will be launched at 3:13 p.m. EST from 
the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. No television coverage 
will be available for the launch.

However, its arrival at the station on March 24 will be 
carried live on NASA TV with commentary beginning at 3:30 
p.m. EST. Docking to the Zvezda Service Module is scheduled 
for 4 p.m. EST.

On board the ISS, Expedition Four Commander Yury Onufrienko, 
and Flight Engineers Carl Walz and Dan Bursch are in the 
fourth month of a planned five-month mission, awaiting the 
early April launch of Atlantis on the STS-110 mission to 
deliver the centerpiece truss structure for the complex, 
which will be mounted on the Destiny Laboratory.

NASA TV can be found on GE-2, Transponder 9C, vertical 
polarization at 85 degrees West longitude, 3880 MHz, with 
audio at 6.8 MHz.
