    There seems to be a problem with the link.

    I wonder if solving this problem would have been easier or more difficult if the capsule had been manned. On the one hand a crew probably could have reacted faster than people on the ground, but on the other hand the probably would have coated the inside of the capsule with astronaut puke by the time the spinning stopped.

    “We had this communication system we call Megaproxy. We had to the reroute the Megaproxy to go through the Air Force long-range dishes to blast the spaceship with enough intensity to upload new code to try to fix the problem.”

    It’s the Lagrange point between Star Trek technobabble and hacker movie technobabble.
