All major news stations report about computer problems at the ISS (International Space Station). The problems are severe enough that an evacuation is possible.

Apparently the Russian computer systems that control the ISS's orientation, oxygen and water supply have failed. A possible cause for the computer failure could be newly installed solar panel.
The docked Space Shuttle is currently taking care of the orientation of the ISS. It could take several days until the astronauts are able to fix the computers.
More details on CNN.
