MOSCOW, March 19. /TASS/. Russian Progress M-26M cargo spacecraft has raised the altitude of the International Space Station (ISS) orbit by 1 kilometer, a source in the rocket and space sector said on Thursday.
"The correction was held in a normal regime," the source said.
The ISS orbit’s average altitude after the adjustment is to reach 402 kilometers (250 miles).
The goal is to create good conditions for the launch to the ISS of Soyuz TMA-16M manned spacecraft due from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, on March 27.
