The transfer is official! Now on board the International Space Station are Commander Peggy Whitson, along with Oleg Novitskiy and Thomas Pesquet.

At 7pm CDT and tomorrow at 7am CDT the pre-launch news conference that took place earlier for Orbital ATK will be rebroadcast on both NASA-TVs. Also on both NASA-TVs, at 8pm CDT and tomorrow at 8am CDT the "What's on Board" science briefing for the CRS-7 launch will be rebroadcast. At 9pm CDT, replay of feed showing the Soyuz vehicle mating and rollout to the launch pad in Russia will be rebroadcast on both NASA-TVs.

The plan is to launch the Orbital ATK CRS-7 tomorrow morning at 10:11am (though the coverage begins at 9am CDT). The coverage of the solar array deployment for the CRS-7 will be broadcast live at 11:30am CDT tomorrow. Both these live events will be covered by both NASA-TVs.
