    Kevin:
    
    Remember, this is a 3 day transit to ISS, so the altitude increases 
    are not scheduled until tomorrow. There was an orbital stabilization 
    burn today to keep the orbit at 224 X 259 km.  Tomorrow's burns are 
    scheduled for orbits 48 and 49, but even the orbit 48 burn only 
    raises the orbit to: 250 X 290 km.
    
    The schedule is on this TsUp web site (in Russian):
