NASA Television will provide live coverage of the launch and docking of an unpiloted Russian resupply ship to the International Space Station (ISS).

The ISS Progress 60 spacecraft will launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 12:55 a.m. EDT (10:55 a.m. Baikonur time) on Friday, July 3, on a two-day trip to deliver more than three tons of food, fuel and supplies to the Expedition 44 crew. NASA TV coverage of the launch will begin at 12:30 a.m.

Progress is scheduled to dock to the station at 3:13 a.m. Sunday, July 5. Docking coverage will begin at 2:30 a.m.

The Progress is loaded with 1,940 pounds of propellant, 106 pounds of oxygen, 926 pounds of water and 3,133 pounds of food, spare parts, logistical items and experiment hardware. The station currently is in good shape with adequate supply levels until at least October.

This is the first Progress launch since the loss of the ISS Progress 59 cargo spacecraft following its liftoff from Baikonur on April 28.
