HOUSTON, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- NASA says it will provide television coverage of the arrival of a shipment of food, fuel and supplies at the International Space Station.

A Russian ISS Progress 35 cargo ship packed with more than two tons of supplies is to dock at the space station Saturday at 9:41 p.m. EDT. NASA's TV coverage is to begin at 9:15 p.m.

Expedition 21 Commander Frank De Winne and astronauts Jeff Williams, Nicole Stott, Roman Romanenko, Max Suraev and Bob Thirsk will observe the event from aboard the station as the unpiloted Russian spacecraft automatically docks to the Pirs Docking Compartment.
