    According to CNN, in an article about the reaction of the ISS crew to the
    Columbia disaster, at
    http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/space/02/11/sprj.colu.station.interview/index.html,
    
    "Earlier Tuesday, a Progress spacecraft boosted the station about six miles
     higher in its orbit. The 450-ton station sinks about 650 feet (200 meters)
     each day due to the effects of gravity."
    
    Gee ... and I thought it was due to the effects of atmospheric drag,
