In accordance with the flight program of the International Space Station (ISS), on February 26, 2019, a planned correction of the ISS orbit was performed.

To carry out the maneuver, at 05:21 Moscow time, the engine system of the “Progress MS-10” cargo vehicle, docked to the ISS, was turned on.

The working time of the engine system was 434 seconds.

As a result, the station received a speed increasing of 0.91 m / s.

According to the data of the ballistic-navigation support service of the Mission Control Center, the parameters of the ISS orbit after the maneuver were:

– the minimum height above the Earth’s surface is 406.6 km,

– the maximum height above the Earth’s surface is 428.5 km,

– period of circulation – 92.678 minutes,

– orbit inclination – 51.65 degrees.

The purpose of the correction was the formation of ballistic conditions for launching and docking of the “Soyuz MS-12” spacecraft.
