Rus­sia re­ports com­puter bug on In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Rus­sia’s space agency says that one of the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion’s com­put­ers has mal­func­tioned, but the glitch doesn’t pose any risks to the crew.

Roscos­mos said Tues­day that one of three com­put­ers in the sta­tion’s Rus­sian mod­ule has failed. It said Rus­sian flight con­trollers plan to re­boot it Thurs­day.

The agency em­pha­sized that the com­puter prob­lem wouldn’t af­fect the sta­tion’s crew — NASA’s Ser­ena Aunon-Chan­cel­lor, Rus­sian Sergei Prokopyev and Ger­man Alexan­der Gerst. It said two other com­put­ers can main­tain the sta­tion’s op­er­a­tion.

The glitch fol­lows last month’s aborted launch of a new sta­tion crew. NASA as­tro­naut Nick Hague and Roscos­mos cos­mo­naut Alexei Ov­chinin landed safely af­ter their Rus­sian booster rocket failed two min­utes into the Oc­to­ber 11 flight. – AP
