During the NAB Show Super Session, a live 4K stream will enable Nasa astronaut Dr. Peggy Whitson on the ISS to talk to AWS Elemental CEO and Co-founder Sam Blackman, who will be at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
About two and a half hours later, the spacecraft was installed to the orbiting lab's Earth-facing port of the Unity module. According to ABC News, the S.S. John Glenn left Cape Canaveral, Florida, on Tuesday carrying 7,700 pounds of supplies for astronauts on the ISS. "The more than three tons of pressurized cargo in the Cygnus spacecraft will be put to good use to continue our mission of research, exploration and discovery".

The mission is Orbital ATK's seventh contracted commercial resupply services (CRS) mission, and its third launch atop an Atlas V rocket from Florida.
"We're very proud to welcome on board the S.S. John Glenn", said French astronaut Thomas Pesquet.

In an internal memo circulated Wednesday, Fox said the decision to remove O'Reilly was made in collaboration with outside counsel. She said she felt "triumphant" when she heard about O'Reilly's firing.
After the astronauts unpack the Cygnus, they will reload it with trash that will burn up along with the spacecraft upon re-entry into Earth's atmosphere on July 25.
The decision to use the White House call to the ISS to excite young Americans about the space frontier, coheres with President Trump's earlier speech promoting NASA and evoking Kennedy's space program.
NASA says Whitson on Monday will officially set the United States record for most cumulative days in space, surpassing astronaut Jeff Williams' record of 534 days.
Whitson also is the first woman to command the space station; she has commanded it twice. The next day, a SpaceX Dragon cargo ship is expected to arrive, followed by a Russian Progress freighter June 14. She also became the first female commander astronaut from NASA, performing eight spacewalks in her entire career. She is now the Commander of the ISS crew, making her the first woman to command the space station twice (she also headed the mission during her second six-month stay in 2007-2008).
