if the hard reset works we need to try to be sure that the computer does 
not crash the same way the next time that happens. Is it possible to change 
the software to tell the cpu to just report those out of range readings to 
ground control on the next pass and to stay online? ... unless it is 
something that will destroy the satellite unless it is shut down immediately.
