Two Russian cosmonauts began to get crucial computers up and running Friday, four days after they crashed at the international space station and curbed the outpost's ability to orient itself and produce oxygen. The progress came after days of frustrating effort and removed a set of troubling options lying ahead for NASA and the Russian space agency if the computers continued to fail. "They're up and operational and this is good news for all," said Lynette Madison, a NASA spokeswoman in Houston. NASA officials said the crew was never in danger of running out of oxygen, power or essentials.
