Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov abolished the malfunction and reported the faults in all ISS systems, but the "revived "computers are still posing problems.

Another Russian supply ship Progress M-59 packed full with waste from the ISS was dumped in the Pacific Ocean on Wednesday.

Two supply ships are attached to the ISS at present. In December last year, Russian Mission Control embarked on the practice of not dumping Progress ships before arrival of replacement cargo spacecraft, as it was done earlier, but to fully use their oxygen supply and to load them with the space station''s waste to a maximum.

Apart from oxygen, specialists seek to make maxim use of the remaining fuel at the supply ships, leaving in them only a minimum necessary for their deorbiting.
