10 December 2003
Last year, when NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe visited the bus-sized cylindrical ATV spacecraft model during crucial tests at ESA's test facilities in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, one of his main questions was to know how big the European cargo ship was compared to the Apollo spaceship used to reach the Moon in the 1960s and 70s.

BBS RS0ISS-11 is active. RS0ISS-1 also accepts connections but transmits no data. At 00.33UTC the station went deaf again. I have no more doubts: there is a problem on the ISS receiver.
