The International Space Station (ISS) has an attitude problem. A computer system wipe-out means the space station is currently depending on the docked space shuttle Atlantis to keep it pointing in the right direction.

Could it be the computers just ran the latest windows update?
It's their own fault
They really shouldn't have upgraded to Vista.

Crack the sledges out...
We all know that all hardware faults are solved with a bit of brute force

"Hi, this is Joe, please be rebooting your computer...."
Sounds like my HONDA
I had a HONDA CIVIC that would sometimes stop, completely, at random times.
The only solution was to disconnect the battery so the onboard computer would reboot.

It bears asking: Is the OS approved for use outside Earth's atmosphere?
