MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. The Mission Control Center (MCC) outside Moscow will adjust the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday, MCC told TASS on Tuesday.
"The Progress M-26M spaceship engine will be ignited at 08:15 am, Moscow time, on May 6 and will work for 736 seconds, giving an impulse of 1.34 metres per second to the station," the source said. According to him, the ISS orbit will be raised by 2.13 km in this manoeuvre to reach 400 km in average.
The orbit adjustment manoeuvre will be made to ensure the conditions for landing of the Soyuz TMA-15M spacecraft that is scheduled for May 14.
According to previous reports, due to the contingency with the Progress M-27M cargo spacecraft that was launched on April 28, the manoeuvre could be cancelled or postponed.
