Following the aborted attempt by the ATV-03 to boost the International Space Station’s orbit last week, a second attempt was made on 22 August, successfully. The ATV-03 conducted two engine firings to boost the ISS orbit to around 420 kilometres. The first engine firing took place at 0915 GMT and operated for 384 seconds to raise the stations apogee to 414.8 kilometres. The second firing took place at 1317 GMT and operated for 34 minutes and 49 seconds to raise the stations perigee to 405 kilometres and apogee to 427 kilometres.
