MOSCOW, July 16. /TASS/. The space debris approach data came too late to conduct a maneuver for the International Space Station (ISS) orbit adjustment, Russia’s Mission Control Center (MCC) outside Moscow said on Thursday.
"The space debris data came unexpectedly, so we have no time to conduct the ISS orbit adjustment operation," an MCC representative said.
"The actions of the crew for the evacuation to the Soyuz spacecraft were conducted in the nominal mode, communication is permanently maintained with the crew. The situation will be clarified within an hour," he said.
Earlier on Thursday, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) reported that the ISS crewmembers were resuming normal operations after a close pass of space debris.
