MOSCOW — Space agency of Russia says that one of the International Space Station’s computers has stopped functioning properly, but this glitch doesn’t actually cause any kind of risks to the crew.
Roscosmos said on Tuesday that one of 3 computers in the Russian module of the station has malfunctioned. It said Russian flight controllers are planning to reboot it as soon as possible.
The agency laid stress on the fact that the computer problem wouldn’t actually affect the crew of the station — NASA’s Serena Aunon-Chancellor, German Alexander Gerst and Russian Sergei Prokopyev. It told that two other computers will be able to maintain the operation of the station.
The glitch follows aborted launch of a new station crew which happened last month. NASA astronaut Nick Hague as well as Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin were able to land safely after their Russian booster rocket failed 2 minutes into the Oct. 11 flight.
The next crew is planned to be launched in early December 2018.
