MOSCOW, May 17. /TASS/. The Mission Control Centre will make another attempt to correct height of the International Space Station’s orbit in early hours on Monday, a source in the space sector told TASS on Sunday.
"The manoeuvre will begin at 03:30 Moscow time on Monday," the source said.
Correction of the ISS orbit was not made on Saturday due to the order banning to start engines, received from the control system of Progress, the source said. Until reasons are clear, it is impossible to consider when another correction may be organised.
After that, Vladimir Solovyev, head of the Russian segment control, told TASS on Saturday: "We have a general understanding of the reason, though not final, we need some more time."
"As yet, I would rather not name the reason. We have a reserve option to make the manoeuvre in small hours of May 18," he said.
As the manoeuvre will use fewer engines, they will be working for longer. The correction, the expert said, will offer optimal conditions for landing of the ISS crew due on June 11 and for launch of another cargo ship to the ISS in early July.
