Software update goes bad - International Space Station lost and then found
So spare a thought for NASA flight controllers.
They lost contact with the International Space Station (ISS) for a nerve-racking three hours during a recent software update:
Flight controllers were in the process of updating the station’s command and control software and were transitioning from the primary computer to the backup computer to complete the software load when the loss of communication occurred.
Fortunately, controllers in Houston, Texas, were able to get in touch with the ISS via Russian ground stations as it passed over the other side of the world, and, in NASA's own words, "instructed the crew to connect another computer to begin the process of restoring communications."
