Russians: Possible 'Fatal Flaw' in Space Station
Russian Sources Tell ABC News They Suspect Americans Damaged Computers
When I said "they" I meant our guys...
Or as my wife put it, "They really screwed the pooch."
Someone must have installed Vista without running the Upgrade Advisor.
A friend of our family works on shuttle components for NASA. He says the software that runs on the shuttle is technologically the equivalent of Windows 3.1
While that seems unusual, it's really not--they want to keep things as simple and straightforward as possible. It is a bit funny, however, that the PC on your desk is many, many times more complex than shuttle technology.
yeah, they keep it lean up there.
when it comes to astronautical(?) tech, its not abt what you need, but what you can do without.
Bloody Americans always sabotaging other countries scientific work! It's just like Fermilab's magnet "accidently" screwing up for CERN and the Large Hadron Collider project...
"Johnson! How many times have I told you, you are not to play Solitaire on the navigational computer!"
Anyone else wondering if one of the Russians has already tried the "This is how we fix things on Russian space station" tactic?
I think it's wild that the amount of electrical work that's gone into the space station is incredibly tight-knit (I mean, it'd have to be) but the electronics is pretty low-tech.
Leave it to us to come to a party and break the furniture...
Spyware = bad
I didn't think you could look up porn on the International Space Station.
"I told you 'touch nothing' but you americans, bunch of cowboys"
Russian components..American components..all made in Taiwan!
In Soviet space station, computers break YOU!
No no no no. Is funny joke, yes, but is happening mainly on American space ship, yes?
I just loved hearing the badly informed opinions at work today that without the computers up that the ISS was just about going to fall out of the sky, not run for 2 months on onboard supplies, and whatever we can get up there with a Progress launch.
REALLY?!? ::worships his Windows XP and calls it "Computus"::
