A mysterious computer system crash shut down the power generation at the International Space Station (ISS), cutting communications with Earth. The power has been restored in three hours, the crew was safe, NASA said.

The failed computer is in the Zvezda Service Module, part of the Russian segment of the station. It transfers data between Russian orientation equipment and four US gyroscopes, monitoring solar panels' and radio antenna's orientation.

Mission control maintained audio communication and computer commands only for a while. The crew has been ordered to save electricity by shutting down power used for scientific experiments. In April the station's three main computer systems shut down.

I wonder if the astronauts on that thing have sex, assuming there are both males and females.
