NASA lost regular communication with the International Space Station on Tuesday and has since established only limited connections.

The space agency said it was doing a routine update of computer software when communications were lost, leaving the craft able to communicate only every 90 minutes when it passes over ground stations in Russia.

“This is the same way they used to do it in the 1960s, with Gemini and Apollo,” NASA spokesman Josh Byerly said. “The crew is working on this, and they’ll get it back up and running.”
