    SUMMARY: The crew of the International Space Station scrambled to restore power this morning when a computer on a Russian module of the station stopped working. The computer glitch knocked out the station's guidance system and prevented its solar wings from pointing at the Sun to generate power. NASA officials said that the crew was in no danger, but lost several hours from their packed work schedule.

    I think when I hear about stuff like this happening that my appreciation and respect for those actually on board the ISS increases exponentially.
