Russia’s space agency restores satellite communication with ISS

An official with Akado Telecom, Denis Rychka, reports that the company has managed to restore the cable connecting Russia’s space agency to tracking stations.

The contact between the Russian Control Center and its ISS segment was re-established as of 10am local time.

Mr. Rychka also said the line was tested by company’s operators and the space center staff.

A construction company mistakenly severed the cable on Wednesday, reports said.
