No prizes for where they are flying over.

ISS Update. GPC-4 update:

Doesn't happen very often. Everyone now and then you get a surprise. Team handled it very quickly.

We don't know if there will be any impact yet. First thing in the morning there will be some troubleshooting to gain some data and see if we can recover the computer.

They were 15 hours ahead on transfers, but will lose six hours via the GPC troubleshooting.

Yep!

"Wake up! Good luck on your last mission, well done."

So we've had Elton, REM and now Sir Paul as A-listers. Who the heck are we going to get for the last few missions?

Crew into post sleep. No ETA on when the troubleshooting will start, but it'll be this morning. Keep an eye on updates everyone, and post them, don't leave it to someone else.

Back after a few hours shuteye.

Sounds like nobody reformatted Atlantis after STS-132 and she's mad.  ;)

Glad all is good, that's two GPCs that have had trouble now, but they're both back up and running.
