NASA briefly loses contact with space station

The International Space Station briefly lost contact with ground controllers on Tuesday because of a computer problem, but its commander said the crew was fine, NASA said. The glitch lasted just under three hours. The agency initially said flight controllers in Houston were updating software on board the station's flight computers when one of the station's data relay systems broke down.

The agency said flight controllers in Houston were updating software on board the station's flight computers when one of the station's data relay systems broke down. The primary computer that controls critical station functions defaulted to a backup computer, but it was not letting the station communicate with NASA's Tracking and Data Relay Satellites, the US space agency said.
