“Hubble is a symbol that has provided an incredible picture of the universe over the past three decades,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said in a statement.
“I’m proud of the Hubble team, from current members to Hubble alumni who have offered their support and experience,” Nelson said. Through their dedication and thoughtful work, Hubble will continue to build on its 31-year legacy to broaden our horizons with a vision of the universe.
The telescope was to continue collecting data on Saturday for the first time since June 13. The telescope utility computer has encountered a problem.
The auxiliary computer, the standard NASA 1 spacecraft computer system or NSSC-1, is used to control and coordinate Hubble scientific instruments. Computer programs analyze and process the data collected.
NASA engineers have discovered that the problem is with the power control unit that ensures it is there A solid source of power to the computer, turning it into a backup PCU.
A PCU with an auxiliary computer is a scientific instrument in a drive and data processing unit.
The Hubble Space Telescope did not always work perfectly. According to NASA, a similar repair took place in 2008 when another part of the SI C&DH failed. Then in 2009 Maintenance work replaced the entire SI C&DH unit.
NASA said Hubble will continue for many years to work with other space observatories, including the James Webbo Space Telescope.
