MOSCOW, September 14. /TASS/. The International Space Station (ISS) orbit has been increased by 3.7 kilometers with the help Russia’s Progress M-28M cargo vehicle, the Mission Control Center said on Monday.
"The maneuver on raising the orbit was carried out with the help of thrusters of the Progress M-28M cargo craft," a representative of the center based outside Moscow told TASS.
As a result, the orbit’s altitude now amounts to 405 kilometers in average. Russia’s space agency Roscosmos said the spacecraft’s thrusters operated for 146 seconds, increasing the station’s velocity by 2.2 m/s.
The ISS now has a crew of six: Russia’s Mikhail Korniyenko, Oleg Kononenko and Sergey Volkov, the United States’ Scott Kelly and Kjell Lindgren and Japan’s Kimiya Yui.
