NASA orders space walk repairs

Posted: Updated:

NASA has ordered spacewalk repairs for the International Space Station.  

Today's orders come in response to what officials consider a serious computer outage. A backup computer for some robotic systems failed Friday.

The main computer is fine and the six-man crew is safe, but the malfunction puts next week's supply run in jeopardy. 

Officials still want one more day before deciding whether or not to delay Monday's space-x launch.
No date for the spacewalk has been set yet.
