MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. The Mission Control Center in the town of Korolyov in the Moscow Region will on Monday morning hold a scheduled adjustment of the orbit altitude of the International Space Station (ISS), Russian state corporation Roscosmos told TASS.
"The maneuver will start on command from the Earth at 7:25 Moscow Time. The cargo spacecraft will give the station a 0.55m/s impulse. The station’s orbital altitude will grow by 950 meters," a Roscosmos spokesman said.
He said these are design parameters of the orbit adjustment. Accurate data will be known after the maneuver.
