Hi Lia

Thanks. We are glad the Progress made it on board.

On Wednesday, Dec. 29, live on NASA TV, starting at 11:45 a.m. EST, my crewmate Flight Engineer Salizhan Sharipov and I are hosting a press conference from the International Space Station.

We'll be unloading our shipment of supplies from the Russian Progress cargo spacecraft, which arrived Christmas night.

Since mid-October, we've been living on the Station conducting science experiments, maintaining operating systems and are prepping for spacewalks scheduled for January and March.

Tune into our news conference which will be telestreamed live on the Internet at: http://www.nasa.gov/ntv
