First content made for Wikipedia in space![edit]

ESA Astronaut Paolo Nespoli's spoken voice

The first ever content made in space specifically for Wikipedia - on the ISS - was uploaded to Commons today, and is used on Paolo Nespoli. See Close encounters of the Wikipedia kind for how this happened. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:11, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

There have now been several press items about this, so I've added it to the article. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:26, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Frequency of reboost?[edit]

I was wondering how often (or how many times a year) are "reboosts" performed to combat orbital decay? 62.147.25.92 (talk) 17:31, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Altitude inconsistency?[edit]

Article says three things I can't reconcile:

  • "The ISS maintains an orbit with an altitude of between 330 and 435 km"
  • "Perigee 401.1 km [...] Apogee 408.0 km"
  • "a minimum mean altitude of 330 km (205 mi) and a maximum of 410 km (255 mi)"

Shouldn't those three sets of values be the same? 62.147.25.92 (talk) 17:34, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
