Russia Says Satellite Connections Working After Cable Break

Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Russia’s space agency said it’s in full contact with satellites and the International Space Station after a broken cable caused it to use a backup system.

“A cable broke in the Moscow area, but that’s not affecting the work of automatic space systems and the International Space Station,” Alexey Kuznetsov, head of Roskosmos’s press office, said today by phone from Moscow. “Everything is under control.”

The cable break halted communications with civilian satellites and Russia’s section of the space station, the state-run RIA Novosti news service reported earlier. “It will be fixed as quickly as possible,” Kuznetsov said, declining to specify how long the repair would take.
