Is it true that you have to do a correctional burn every so often to keep the station in orbit? What causes the deviation that warrants this correction? I thought that once an object is in a stable orbit it stays that way forever.
Keep up the great work!

Oh really? So where does the atmosphere end completely? How far up do you have to go to be completely free from atmospheric drag?

Oh really? Wow I had no idea. So if you left it unmanned and without any correctional burns would it just fall back to Earth after a while?
