ISS illustration (NASA) A communications glitch cut off the International Space Station's primarily link to the ground for nearly three hours on Tuesday. The loss of communications started at 9:45 am EST (1445 GMT) as the crew was switching computers while updating the station's command and control software. The station's crew did make contact with controllers via Russian ground stations at 11 am EST (1600 GMT) and received instructions on how to restore the main communications link. Regular communications resumed at 12:34 pm EST (1734 GMT).
