NASA TV AIRS DELIVERY TO SPACE STATION CREW 

     NASA TV will broadcast live the arrival of the Russian 
Progress cargo spacecraft at the International Space Station 
(ISS) on Dec. 25. NASA TV coverage begins at 6 p.m. EST, and the 
Progress will dock at approximately 7:05 p.m. EST.

The Progress will bring approximately 5,000 pounds of cargo to 
the ISS Expedition 10 crew. This is the 16th Progress to dock 
with the Station. The supplies include food, fuel, spare 
equipment and Christmas gifts from home. Commander Leroy Chiao 
and Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov have been aboard the 
Station since mid-October.

To make room for the new craft, the Progress that arrived at the 
Station in August will be undocked and deorbited on Wednesday, 
Dec. 22. NASA TV will not cover the Progress 15 undocking. The 
new Progress is scheduled to launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, 
Kazakhstan, at 5:19 p.m. EST on Dec. 23. NASA will not have live 
TV coverage of the launch. A status report will be issued once 
the Progress reaches orbit.

continental U.S. on AMC-6, Transponder 9C, C-Band, at 72 degrees
