From the "This was Bound to Happen at Some Point" File: Oxygen Generator Fails for Good on Space Station - 140 Days of air left (and counting)

I think I saw this episode of Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Space 1999, MacGuyver, et al...
ISS Oxygen Generator Fails for Good, Station Managers Say: "CAPE CANAVERAL - A balky Russian oxygen generator broke down on the International Space Station, but its two-man crew has a reserve air supply that would last about five months, NASA officials said Friday.

The station's primary generator, which has been operating in an on-again, off-again fashion for months, stopped working last week and the station's crew has not been able to fix it."
