NASA ANNOUNCES SPACE STATION SUPPLY CRAFT LAUNCH & DOCKING  

     The next Russian Progress (14) supply spacecraft for the 
International Space Station (ISS) will launch Tuesday, May 
25, and dock Thursday, May 27.

To make room for the new spacecraft, the Progress that 
arrived at the ISS in January will be undocked on Monday. 
There will be no NASA TV coverage of the undocking.

The Progress spacecraft, carrying 3,000 pounds of food, fuel 
and supplies for the Expedition 9 ISS crew, is scheduled to 
launch Tuesday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 
8:34 a.m. EDT. There will be no television coverage of the 
launch, but a status report will be issued when the 
spacecraft reaches orbit.

NASA TV will broadcast the docking live starting Thursday at 
9 a.m. EDT. The actual docking is scheduled at approximately 
9:55 a.m. EDT. NASA TV is available on AMC-9, transponder 9C, 
C-Band, located at 85 degrees west longitude. The frequency 
is 3880.0 MHz. Polarization is vertical, and audio is 
monaural at 6.80 MHz. The live NASA TV coverage of the 
docking will also be webcast at:
