    Someone sent me a provate message, on the reason they had cancelled the orbit boost the other day, it's was because of debris getting close to the iss, after the boost.
    
    There is a message about that, at
    
    http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/index.html
    
    So they will try again, to do the boost.
