We do not know the reason behind this network failure, but there is a possibility that it is connected to the excavations outside our building earlier on today. If the link remains down until tomorrow morning we will be reporting the failure to the observatory maintenance team.

The good news is that the network failure will not stop the telescope operating. The telescope will continue to complete jobs from the queue, these jobs will be returned to the UK when the network link is restored.
