According to ballistic and navigational support service specialists calculations progress M-26M cargo vehicle thrusters were ignited at 03.30, Moscow time, and have been operating for 1922 seconds. As a result of this maneuver the station got velocity increment of 1,75 m/s.

After this maneuver the station’s orbit increased by 3,2 km and amounted to 401,88 km.

After station adjustment ISS parameters are as follows:

-minimum altitude – 400,76 km;

-maximum altitude – 417,75 km;

– orbit time – 92,54 min.;

– orbit inclination – 51,66 degrees.

The orbit was adjusted to form working orbit for Soyuz TMA-15M spacecraft landing.
