    (Also how much lower will the ISS be allowed to drop before the next boost-
    especially bearing in mind the high geomagnetic activity?!- any comments on
    what is the lowest safe altitude?)
    
    Plenty of altitude to drop still and be safe. Not sure what they define as safe altitude. As long
    as progress spacecraft go up, the iss is safe.
    
    I am betting no boost is planned for awhile:) They are lauching a new progress spacecraft to the
    iss on Aug 30. Because of that, I am betting they won't adjust the orbit of the iss. Any boost
    will be done after that, let's wait and see, if my hunch is right.
