Jonathan's Space Report 
No. 753 draft                                                 2018 Aug 17  Somerville, MA

JSR 752 is now permalinked at http://planet4589.org/space/jsr/back/news.752.txt

International Space Station
---------------------------

Expedition 56 continues with astronauts Feustel, Artem'ev, Arnold, Prokop'ev,
Aunon-Chancellor and Gerst.

Kosmos-2519/2521/2523: Addendum
---------------------

I forgot to include in last issue's analysis the total manuever capability demonstrated by
the three satellites:

 Kosmos-2519  125 m/s
 Kosmos-2521  204 m/s
 Kosmos-2523   27 m/s

I should also have noted that Phillip Clark has presented his own excellent analysis of the mission
in an article in Spaceflight magazine (vol 60, p 30, June 2018) and I understand that
a sequel is in the works.   n
