NASA loses communication with ISS


www. cfnews13.com

According to the space agency, flight controllers in Houston were updating software onboard the ISS' flight computers around 9:45 a.m. Tuesday when one of the station's data relay systems malfunctioned.

The primary computer controlling critical station functions defaulted to a backup computer, which is not allowing the station to communicate with NASA's Tracking and Data Relay Satellites.

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I have yet to see it come up in the 'new' posts list... It seems NASA can't communicate with the the International Space Station. Article continues to state that it lost communication as the ISS was flying over Russian ground stations, I have a feeling the international blame game may run rampant pretty soon here... thoughts?

Nice....gotta love the last quote on the story....




Chris Hadfield, an American astronaut on board the ISS, sent out the following tweet Tuesday morning: "Good Morning, Earth! Today we transition the Space Station's main computers to a new software load. Nothing could possibly go wrong."

Gotta love that they are wrong! Chris Hadfield is a Canadian astronaut, in fact he was the first Canadian to walk in space. (Wikipedia). So did they just make an assumption he was American or did they just not bother to check their facts?

Well, i tried to make this a little more light hearted by commenting that it was those Chinese hackers who are at it again but received a comment about one line responses so re-edited my post and emptied it

On a more serious note though, i hope this will not have serious consequences for the crew of the ISS concerning other software up there which may have a negative impact on important life support functions?

Kindest apologetic regards

Rodinus

Eh, malfunctions happen in space just like they do here on terra firma. A software glitch by any other name is still just a software glitch. I don't see any big conspiracy or the start of an international "blame game" incident in the making. I mean really, who hasn't experienced software problems?

CNN: edition.cnn.com...

According to them, there are 1 American and 2 Russians on board. Wonder what happened to the Canadian commander. And to those 2 other guys onboard, for that matter...

I always thought saying "nothing can go wrong" will somehow lead to something going wrong...

Turned it off and on again?

Always works for me. Hehe.

Good to hear they are beck in communications, not nice thinking "In space can anyone hear you scream?".

Oh Lord-Are they OK up there?

Could it be space junk or dare I say meteor related?

I hope they are all safe and its just a busted transmitter.
Please let that be the case.
Edit:
Ah I see its fixed-Thank goodness,I would not have slept tonight worrying about those folks.

We had an F-15 pilot tell us once "I'm going today, even if I lose an engine on take off." We all stepped back.
About the time he was going so fast, he couldn't safely abort (without taking the barrier and risking major damage to the plane), he lost an engine. He stopped. Plane sat there for months. Don't EVER say that.
