NASA TV will stream live coverage of a supply shipment arrival to the International Space Station research facility on Saturday.

A Russian craft is delivering the shipment of food, fuel and supplies to the station, NASA said in a statement.

Coverage of the arrival of the Progress 41 resupply craft will begin at 8 p.m. CST (9 p.m. EST), with docking expected to take place about 40 minutes later.

The cargo ship is carrying three tons of supplies for six crew members aboard the station. The craft will launch on Thursday at 7:31 p.m. from Kazakhstan, but coverage will not be provided, NASA said.

The Progress 41 will remain attached to the station until late April, when it will undock and be commanded to destruction in the Earth's atmosphere while carrying trash from the station, NASA says. Progress 42 is scheduled to connect three days later

The Kazakhstan Launchpad is the same one used to launch crew members to the station, NASA says.

It will be the second supply ship to arrive at the station this year. On January 22, the Japanese Kounotori2, or white stork, vehicle delivered a shipment.

A European ship called the Johannes Kepler, will launch for a delivery mission on February 15.
