    Yahoo-Reuters article:
    
    "The International Space Station ... was left unable to steer 
    in space on Wednesday after an unexplained problem with a 
    ground-based computer in Moscow, but astronauts were able to 
    use jets on the space shuttle Discovery ..., which was docked 
    there, to maintain stable flight.
    
    "The cause of the problem had not been identified, but NASA 
    ... said it hoped the station would resume attitude control 
    by Thursday morning."
    
    Etc.
