Special Delivery: Cargo Ship to Arrive at International Space Station – L ive TV Coverage Planned
The Expedition One crew will receive a special delivery
this week — a Russian cargo ship that will dock to the
orbiting outpost Feb. 28. The cargo ship will be carrying
supplies for the next Expedition crew, Commander Yury Usachev
and flight engineers Jim Voss and Susan Helms, who will
replace the Expedition One crew next month.
On Wednesday, Feb. 28, NASA Television plans live coverage of
the Russian Progress supply ship’s arrival at the space
station. Coverage and commentary will originate from the
Space Station Control Room at NASA’s Johnson Space Center,
Houston, TX, beginning at 4 a.m. EST. The automated Progress
docking is planned for around 4:48 a.m. EST.
Expedition One Soyuz Pilot Yuri Gidzenko will be stationed in
the Zvezda Service Module to take over manual control of the
docking operation, if necessary, as he did back in November
during another Progress arrival. Commander Bill Shepherd and
Flight Engineer Sergei Krikalev will also be standing by in
the Service Module.
The Expedition One crew is scheduled to return to Earth in
late March aboard Space Shuttle Discovery, having lived
aboard the space station for more than four months.
NASA Television can be found on GE-2, Transponder 9C, 85
degrees West longitude, vertical polarization, 3880 MHz, with
audio at 6.8 MHz.
