Russian Space Agency loses communications with satellites, ISS. I hope this doesn't have any serious repercussions ie., space-collisions, nuclear first strikse, etc.---

MOSCOW, Russia - Russia on Wednesday, November 14 lost the ability to send commands to most of its satellites and its segment of the International Space Station following a power cable failure near Moscow.

The Roscosmos space agency attributed the embarrassing malfunction to basic road repair work near the the sprawling Korolyov mission control centre outside Moscow.

Officials said the problem may take 48 hours to fix and could theoretically delay the November 19 return to Earth of three ISS members who are completing their four-month mission on board the floating international space lab.

"We have not had a connection with the ground telemetry stationed in Russia for the past two hours," RIA Novosti quoted an unidentified source in the Russian space industry as saying.

"Our specialists lack the ability to control the civilian satellites or send commands to the Russian segment of the ISS," said the source, while adding the problem could take two days to fix.

Strange excuse or just very bad sharing of infrastructure information between the RSI and whoever was digging close to supposed cables that run satellite communications to multiples of satellites and ISS,not sure if the excuse is such a great One but you never know,it could simply be the case.

Hello Shada : )

More than likely just missed communications with other companies. In the corporate world, it's ironic that more times then not, those in the "Communications" fields are the ones that do not clearly communicate.
