NASA mission control in Houston has lost all communications with ISS.

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Communications are still possible each orbit for short periods with Moscow.

    Leave it to NASA to tie in everything including the toilets to a central computer.

    And then forgot to send up a manual back up shortwave. 500 bucks could have made things all better and kept communications going world wide instead of just over Russia.

    And these are the best and brightest we have?

    We need to send up a custodian to keep things going up there.
