MOSCOW, February 22 (Itar-Tass) – The Russian Mission Control Centre will adjust the International Space Station’s orbit on Friday, February 22, for the Soyuz TMA-06M spacecraft to undock safely.
Soyuz will take Russian cosmonauts Oleg Novitsky and Yevgeny Tarelkion and NASA astronaut Kevin Ford back to Earth on March 15.
The transport ship Progress M-17M will be used for orbit correction. Its engines will be activated at 14:34 Moscow time and will work 276.7 seconds to raise the station by about 1 kilometre.
Every day, the ISS falls by 150-200 metres.
