NASA TV TO COVER NEXT SPACE STATION CARGO SHIP ARRIVAL

     NASA Television will provide live coverage of and commentary 
on the next cargo ship arrival to the International Space 
Station. Coverage will begin at midnight EDT on Friday, 
August 13 and extend into the early morning hours of 
Saturday. The automated Russian Progress, the 15th spacecraft 
of its kind to visit the Station, is scheduled to dock at 
1:02 a.m. EDT.

The new Progress is carrying almost three tons of food, fuel, 
water and supplies to Expedition 9 Commander Gennady Padalka 
and Flight Engineer/NASA ISS Science Officer Mike Fincke, who 
are in the fourth month of a six-month mission on the 
Station. The Progress also contains clothing and personal 
items for the next Station residents, who will arrive in 
October.

The Progress vehicle will launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome 
in Kazakhstan at 
1:03 a.m. EDT, Wednesday, Aug. 11, for its three-day trip to 
the Station. There will be no live video of the launch.
