Russia's Mission Control Center said Thursday it had successfully completed the correction of the International Space Station's orbit
Russia's Mission Control Center said Thursday it had successfully completed the correction of the International Space Station's orbit, raising it eight kilometers (4.97 miles). An expert with Mission Control said the corrective maneuvers, involving two engines from the Progress M-54 cargo vehicle, which is docked with the ISS, had raised the ISS's average orbit to about 353 kilometers (219.35 miles). The October 19 attempt to correct the ISS' orbit failed after a system engine shutoff in the Progress M-54. The next cargo vehicle, the Progress M-55, is set to be launched from the Baikonur Space Center in Kazakhstan December 8.
