NASA PLANS TV COVERAGE OF PROGRESS DOCKING WITH SPACE STATION

     NASA Television will broadcast the arrival of the next 
Russian resupply vehicle to the International Space Station 
on August 30. The spacecraft, Progress 12, is scheduled to 
dock to the Station at approximately 11:42 p.m. EDT.

Live coverage begins at 11:00 p.m. EDT and will include 
commentary and available video.  Other events leading up to 
the voyage of the Progress 12 to the Station will be covered 
by written status reports available at:

http://spaceflight.nasa.gov.

Those events include:
?	The August 27 undocking and de-orbiting of an earlier 
resupply ship, Progress 10, which arrived at the Space 
Station in February. It is being removed from the 
docking site to make way for the new shipment.
?	The August 28 launch of the Progress 12 from the 
Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The Progress 12 craft will carry 1000 pounds of food, fuel 
and supplies for the Expedition 7 crew on board the Station. 
Expedition 7 Commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA Station 
Science Officer Ed Lu have been working on board since April.

NASA Television is broadcast on AMC-9, transponder 9C, C-
Band, located at 85 degrees west longitude. The frequency is
