    Correct.
    
    
    This from latest status report:
    
    "The current cargo spacecraft docked to the Station, a Russian Progress 
    vehicle, was used Wednesday to raise the Station's altitude. The vehicle's 
    engines burned for five minutes, 18 seconds to raise the Station's orbit to 
    221.5 by 215.9 statute miles. The boost began the adjustments needed for 
    rendezvous with Space Shuttle Discovery. Another burn is scheduled for July 
    6 at 9:58 a.m. CDT to enhance the rendezvous opportunities during the 
    Shuttle's July launch window that extends from July 13 to July 31"
