Orion communication loss lasted more than 45 minutes
NASA said on Wednesday that communication with the Orion spacecraft has been restored after “unexpected loss”.
In a blog post, the agency wrote that NASA’s Mission Control Center at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, unexpectedly lost data for 47 minutes at 12:09 a.m. CST.
The loss occurred while reconfiguring the communications link between Orion and the Deep Space Network overnight.
“The reconfiguration has been successfully conducted several times over the past few days, and the team is investigating the cause of the loss of signal,” NASA wrote.

The team resolved the problem with a grassroots reconfiguration.
NASA said, “Engineers are examining data from the incident to determine what happened, and the command and data handling officer will be downlinking data recorded on Orion during the outage to incorporate into that evaluation.” ”

It said that there was no impact on Orion and that it remained in a healthy configuration.
This hiccup comes after a hydrogen leak and other delays ahead of the Space Launch System rocket’s Artemis I launch.
The rocket and the uncrewed Orion capsule were launched from the Kennedy Space Center on the morning of November 16.
