The link was restored at 12:34 p.m. ET

NASA managed to fix its broken communication link with the International Space Station (ISS) earlier today after a temporary malfunction.

During a software upgrade for NASA's command and control and voice/data communication systems, the link to the ISS suffered a glitch and was knocked offline at 9:45 a.m. ET. The glitch occurred when the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite system switched from the primary computer to a backup computer.

For the duration of the outage, the astronauts at the ISS used Russian ground stations for communications. Around 12:34 p.m. ET, the link was restored.

"It is a problem, but the crew was not in danger," said Josh Byerly, spokesman for NASA.

"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet.  A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
