Hubble, which is currently in a semi-operational state, will continue its operations after the systems stabilize.
With NASA’s statement on Friday, Semi-operational Hubble Space Telescope He said he got it working. Hubble has been in safe mode for over a month and is now running on the backup computer. In addition, work continues to make the systems fully active.
Hubble’s main computer crashed on June 13, and NASA engineers were unable to bring it back to life for a long time. The problem was thought to be related to the memory module, which was discovered to be in the power control unit.
The power supply supplies five volts of power to the system. When power fluctuates or cuts, the telescope pauses until sufficient power is available. NASA has made several attempts to successfully operate the power supply. Therefore, the technical team decided to switch to a backup computer as a last resort, as it is a complex and risky process.
Ultimately, the backup process was successful. The NASA team will now spend more time operating the other equipment of the Hubble Space Telescope. When everything works in a stable way, scientific studies will continue.
Meanwhile, Hubble is slowly approaching the end of its life. We expected the launch of the new James Webb Space Telescope on October 31, but another delay had come. When things go well, both space telescopes will continue to work together for a while.
