Today’s reboost complete
Update received this morning from ESA Mission Director Eric Conquet at ATV-CC, Toulouse.
Live from ATV-CC at 02:12 GMT (04:12 Toulouse time) here is the latest report on ATV operations.
ATV continues its mission in a very good shape and continues operating nominally. This was again shown tonight with the perfect execution of second ISS reboost of the ATV-5 mission. This manoeuvre was performed using ATV’s Nos. 1 and 3 main thrusters (OCS thrusters), which were ignited at 02:08:00 GMT for 224 seconds to increase the ISS speed by 0.55 m/s with a propellant consumption of 74 kg.
Next scheduled operation will be the first refuelling sequence set for Tuesday, 16 September.
