Hi Joan and list, 

I suspect that FS-3 has just "crashed" and needs some attention.  Usually that involves getting it back to a primitive level of operation and testing, and then reloading all of the spacecraft's software.  So, it'll take some time.  But I really do think we can recover it.    Last reload was over 3.5 years ago! It takes a lot of preparation and sometimes multiple attempts to get all software loaded and running.  Keep the hope :). Probably a couple weeks.
