Russian computers controlling the International Space Station's (ISS) orientation and supply of oxygen and water have failed, Nasa officials say.
The station's three crew and seven visiting shuttle astronauts are not at any immediate risk; the ISS has not lost all vital systems.

Engineers have not encounered a problem like this before? It's obvious the computer realized the people on-board needed the oxygen and water and as a computer does it froze up just to resist them (like when you let your computer know you are in a hurry.) :thumbsup: except the other way around. Sounds like it's the first of many to try and TERMINATE THEM!!!

Wouldn't it be terrible if we realized all the space tragedies were the introduction to the rise of the terminators?

I'm thinking more along the lines of "Open the podbay doors HAL...... I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that...,.."
