    Anybody know how much the ISS was reboosted (in terms of increasing the
    average height) ?  I guess either they wanted to keep the ISS out of the
    upper atmosphere just to play it safe, or just to use up some of the
    Progress's fuel (since it is going to be destroyed shortly anyway).
    
    Seems kind of odd at first sight, considering that the Space Shuttle will
    be there in about a month.  Of course, probably more than a month, since
    virtually no Shuttle mission goes up on schedule.
