HOUSTON -- NASA Television will provide live coverage as a Russian Progress cargo spacecraft arrives at the International Space Station at 9:38 a.m. CDT on Friday, Aug. 26.

NASA TV coverage will begin at 9 a.m. The unpiloted Progress 44 spacecraft will automatically dock to the rear port of the station's Zvezda service module.

The cargo ship will carry three tons of food, fuel and other supplies for the six crew members, Expedition 28 Commander Andrey Borisenko and Flight Engineers Ron Garan, Mike Fossum, Satoshi Furukawa, Alexander Samokutyaev and Sergei Volkov.

It will be launched at 8 a.m. (7 p.m. Baikonur time) on Wednesday, Aug. 24, from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. NASA TV will not air the launch live, but will show replays during the regularly scheduled 10 a.m. "ISS Update" program.
