Tough times for the resupply. My latest at STA.

Russian Resupply Ship Experiencing Difficulties; International Space Station, Crew are Fine
[Via NASA Breaking News]

The six crew members of the International Space Station (ISS) are safe and continuing regular operations with sufficient supplies as Russian flight controllers plan for another attempt to communicate with a cargo resupply spacecraft bound for the station. The next attempt to link with the spacecraft comes at 8:50 p.m. EDT Tuesday.


While this is not a critical supply mission – and SpaceX will be sending up another supply in June – there are almost 1000 pounds of water and over 3000 pounds of spare parts/research gear.

As of 11 PM EDT, the controllers have still not regained control.

Hope they can regain control. Never nice to see things go awry, although they often do.
