On Friday the 24th I was watching the NASA channel on cable TV to
see how the experiments and Shuttle crew were doing. The men onboard
needed to send instructions to the experiments in the cargo bay and
were using a laptop to do it. As some of you may have heard, there
was a “computer problem” onboard as reported by CNN. The exchange
of information between the crew and the Johnson Space Center (JSC)
went something like this:

Crew: Urgent Johnson, we can’t get a DOS prompt.
JSC: Press C: enter.
Crew: Heck, we’re not familiar with all this
JSC: What screen are you looking at?
Crew: It says ‘My Computer’, and, er, various other icons.
JSC: Click on ‘Start’ and then shut down.
Crew: You click the ‘Start’ button to shut down?
JSC: Yeah. Isn’t it obvious?
Crew: Somebody get me an aspirin.
JSC: Just hit the damn ‘Start’ button.
Crew: We can’t do that. It didn’t load a mouse.
JSC: Didn’t load any mouse at all?
Crew: Well, yeah, a PS/2 or something. But we
don’t have one of those
JSC: Okay. Press Alt + Esc.
Crew: And what does that do?
JSC: It should help.
Crew: Negative.
JSC: Stand by, will replicate the problem down here.
Crew: Roger.
[Long pause]
JSC: Okay then. Double click the MS-DOS icon.
Crew: I don’t have a mouse.
JSC: Go to backup.
Crew: Which is what?
JSC: Dock with the Russians. They have a Unix
Workstation you can borrow.
