Correction of the ISS orbit was nominally. / October 21, 2011 /

October 19 carried out the planned correction of the orbit of the International Space Station.

The maneuver was performed using vernier engine service module «Zvezda».
Correction of the orbit was nominally in accordance with the calculations of ballistic Service Mission Control Center Research Institute of mechanical engineering.

Following the correction of the ISS orbit parameters were as follows:
minimum height above the Earth — 377.6 km;
maximum height above the Earth’s surface — 402.9 km;
period — 92.26 minutes;
inclination — 51.66 degrees.

The following correction of the ISS orbit is scheduled for October 26. The purpose of these exercises is to ensure optimal conditions for the flight to the station ships «Progress M-13M» and «Soyuz TMA-22» and the landing capsule «Soyuz TMA-02M» in a given area landing.
