From ATV Control Centre, Jean-Michel Bois’ update on this morning’s activities:

Two boosts this morning were performed with very high accuracy. At 07:42 and 08:30 UTC, decreasing ATV Albert Einstein’s speed by 1.7 m/s.

The thrusters were ignited for 29 seconds, bringing Albert’s orbit down to around 360km – around 50 km below the International Space Station’s orbit.

The next set of manoeuvres is planned tomorrow 01 November at 18:27 and 19:13 UTC.
