The orbit of the International Space Station has been successfully corrected by experts of the Mission Control Center.

      As reported by MCC, planned correction of the orbit of the International Space Station took place in the morning on September 7. By means of engines of the cargo space ship Progress M-28M the orbital altitude of the ISS was increased by 950 meters to make 402 kilometers.

      |For this purpose the engines of Progress were turned on for 550 seconds to give an impetus of 0,55 m/s to the ISS.

      It is a reminder that nine astronauts, including eight Russians, namely Gennady Padalka, Oleg Kononenko, Mikhail Korniyenko and Sergey Volkov, as well as Kjell Norwood Lindgren and Scott Kelly from the USA, Yui Kimiya from Japan, Andreas Mogensen from Europe, and Aidyn Aimbetov from Kazakhstan are presently on day at the International Space Station.
