ISS orbit was adjusted on June 25, 2014, – MCC reports.

According to calculations of MCC  ballistic and navigational support service specialists Zvezda service module thrusters were ignited at 10.41 UTC (14.41 Moscow time). The thrusters operated for 63,9 seconds, the station got velocity increment of 1 m/s.

As a result the medium altitude if the station’s orbit increased by 1,8 km and amounted to 415,74 km.

According ballistic and navigational support service specialists after adjustment the station’s parameters are as follows:

Minimum altitude – 413,63 km;

Maximum altitude – 433,85 km;

Orbit time – 92,82 minutes;

Inclination – 51,663 °

ISS reboost maneuver was accomplished to form the working orbit of the station before the docking with Progress M-24M cargo vehicle scheduled for July 24, 2014.
