Jules Verne Gives the ISS a Boost

Animation of the ISS re-boost performed by Jules Verne ATV. The Station’s altitude naturally decreases with atmospheric drag. Regular re-boosts push the Station back into a higher altitude. Re-boosts can be provided by the Russian Progress, the Space Shuttle, the ISS itself and the ATV. Credits: ESA
