“Russian engines have become the only regular means of maintaining the altitude of the station’s orbit.” Roscosmos uses Progress spacecraft engines to evade space debris

The Russian space agency announced that the International Space Station’s orbital altitude will be adjusted today to avoid space debris. For this maneuver, the engines of the Progress spacecraft will be used.


“International Space Station Space Debris Evasion Maneuver will be conducted on Saturday afternoon”, – stated in the message of Roscosmos in the Telegram channel. The department clarified that the engines of the Progress MS-18 ship will be turned on at 16:25 Moscow time. The orbit height will be increased by 1.8 km.

“The Russian segment of the ISS ensures that the station’s orbit is corrected (on average 11 times a year), including for its avoidance of space debris. After the cessation of flights by American shuttles and European ATV ships, Russian engines became the only regular means of maintaining the altitude of the station’s orbit.– emphasized in Roskosmos.
