In order to form ballistic conditions before the launch of the Soyuz MS-17 manned transport vehicle, the orbit of the International Space Station is scheduled to be corrected on July 29, 2020.
According to preliminary data from the ballistic and navigation support service of the TsNIIMash Flight Control Center (part of the Roscosmos State Corporation), the engines of the Progress MS-14 spacecraft will be turned on at 16:42 Moscow time and will operate for 336.3 seconds. After that, the height of the station’s orbit will increase by 1,100 meters and will be about 419.1 km above the Earth.
