Regular contact with space station lost

NASA has lost regular communications with the International Space Station, a NASA official confirmed Tuesday.

The space agency says it is currently only able to communicate every 90 minutes when the facility passes over ground stations in Russia.

The station, which is carrying one American astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts, does not appear to be in danger, NASA spokesman Josh Byerly said.
