There will also be replays at 7:45pm CDT and tomorrow at 6:45am.

The current slated launch time for Expedition 48 is 24 June. Expedition members leaving Earth on that day are Takuya Onishi (I couldn't find a title), Flight Engineer Anatoly Ivanishin and Flight Engineer Kate Rubins. Rubins has studied cancer and HIV extensively; she was selected in July 2009 as part of NASA's 20th Astronaut Class.

Some B-roll feed showing Rubins in training will be broadcast on all three NASA-TVs tomorrow at 7:30am CDT, following at 8am with live interviews with Rubins (who is currently in Moscow).

There is a lot happening in the way of Expedition 48 preparations. The crew plans to go into space within the next twenty-six hours.

Here are some replays on both NASA-TVs (not "all three" anymore; remember, NASA Public and NASA Education have now merged)...
*At 7pm, there will be some news feed of the final Soyuz fit check and activities at the Cosmodrome.
*At 9pm we can see the footage of the Soyuz MS-1 mating and rollout to the launch pad; also, some interviews of the crew.
*At 11am, 1pm and 5pm tomorrow NASA will replay the Russian State Commission Meeting and the final Expedition 48/49 pre-launch news conference; Ivanishin, Rubins and Onishi take part.
All times are Central Daylight.

Finally, the big moment! Live coverage of the launch begins at 7:30pm CDT tomorrow evening. The launch is scheduled for 8:36pm CDT. (This coverage will be interrupted briefly to show B-roll of the crew's launch day activities.)

NASA has prepared a B-roll consisting of pre-launch activities, the launch itself and related interviews. NASA-TV will show this B-roll at 9pm CDT, and tomorrow at 7am CDT, 1pm CDT, 6pm CDT and 9pm CDT. The Russian State Commission Meeting and the final prelaunch news conference will be rebroadcast tomorrow at 6am CDT, 12pm CDT and 5pm CDT.

Live coverage of the three newcomers' Soyuz MS-01 docking begins tomorrow at 10:30pm CDT. The actual docking is slated to be complete at 11:12pm CDT.

Flight Engineer Anatoly Ivanishin was graduated with honors from the Chernigov Higher Military Aviation School and was selected as a cosmonaut candidate in May 2003.

At 9:20am CDT on Wednesday the media will conduct an interview with Williams and Rubins, and again (different media) on Thursday at 10:05am CDT.

The SPHERES Zero Robotics competition begins next week, and Williams and cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka are configuring some little satellites in preparation for that contest.
