NASA ANNOUNCES STATION CARGO CRAFT ARRIVAL AND NEWS CONFERENCE

The International Space Station crew will receive a new shipment of 
food, fuel and supplies Monday, June 26, and they will host a news 
conference at 8:54 a.m. EDT Tuesday, June 27. Both events will be 
broadcast live on NASA TV.

In their third month in space, Expedition 13 Commander Pavel 
Vinogradov and Flight Engineer Jeff Williams will monitor the 
Progress 22 resupply craft as it automatically docks to the station 
at approximately 12:30 p.m. EDT June 26. NASA TV docking coverage 
will begin at 11:30 a.m. EDT.

Vinogradov and Williams will discuss their flight during the news 
conference on Tuesday. Reporters at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, 
Fla.; Johnson Space Center, Houston; and NASA Headquarters in 
Washington may ask questions. The crew will be in the final days of 
preparation for the arrival of the Space Shuttle Discovery. It is 
scheduled to launch July 1 on mission STS-121.

The Progress cargo craft, the twenty-second to visit the station, is 
set to launch June 24 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, 
carrying approximately 5,000 pounds of supplies. NASA will issue a 
status report confirming the cargo craft's launch. The launch will 
not be broadcast on NASA TV.
