The orbit of the International Space Station has undergone an adjustment for the landing of the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft. This was reported in Roskosmos.
The orbit correction was necessary to create ballistic conditions for the arrival of the unmanned craft. According to preliminary data, the average height increased by 1.1 kilometers and amounted to 419.3 kilometers.
The station’s orbit was corrected using the engines of the Progress MS-22 cargo spacecraft. They were launched at 22:47 Moscow time. The total operating time was 318 seconds, Roscosmos added.
Last year, the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft was depressurized, as a result of which the mission of cosmonauts Sergei Prokopiev and Dmitry Petelin was extended. At the beginning of March, specialists were engaged in rearranging their lodgements from the affected ship to the Soyuz MS-23.
