<p><BR/>Replying to:<BR/><DIV CLASS='Discussion_PostQuote'>&nbsp;My question: Would it be possible to change the ISS's orbital inclination? The Russians can launch their Soyuz from Guiana now, so why not have the Russians use the equatorial spaceport and lower the ISS's inclination.&nbsp; <br />Posted by wubblie</DIV><br /><br />NO!</p><p>The ISS is quite massive (I'll have to check for current value) It would require an enormous amount of fuel and thrust to change the inclination. More than it could possible be worth doing.</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John. Monsters.
