NASA TV Live Coverage of Space Station Soyuz Relocation
 
 
The International Space Station (ISS) crew will take a short ride around the block next week, as they fly their Soyuz spacecraft from one docking port to another. NASA TV will carry the maneuver live starting at 4 a.m. EST, Monday Nov. 29. At 4:29 a.m. EST, ISS Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov, the Soyuz Commander, will undock the spacecraft from the Station's Pirs Docking Compartment. Sharipov and ISS Expedition 10 Commander and NASA Station Science Officer Leroy Chiao will fly the Soyuz to a nearby docking port on the Station's Zarya module, arriving at about 5 a.m. EST. The repositioning of the Soyuz will clear Pirs, which also serves as an airlock for spacewalks, for a pair of spacewalks planned by Chiao and Sharipov early next year. NASA TV is available on the Web and via satellite in the continental U.S. on AMC-6, Transponder 9C, C-Band, at 72 degrees west longitude. The frequency is 3880.0 MHz. Polarization is vertical, and audio is monaural at 6.80 MHz. In Alaska and Hawaii, NASA TV is available on AMC-7, Transponder 18C, C-Band, at 137 degrees west longitude. The frequency is 4060.0 MHz. Polarization is vertical, and audio is monaural at 6.80 MHz. The Soyuz repositioning will be available live on the Internet at:
