NASA has been successful, the Hubble Telescope is operational again


Although he did not suffer a physical injury, the American Space Telescope had not been in operation for nearly a month.

NASA reported in June that Hubble had become inoperable despite no injuries. The space agency betrayed that communication with Hubble was not interrupted, so they were already trying to recover.

Named after the astronomer Edwin Hubble, the structure has been working in space for over 30 years, during which time it has taken dazzling images like the one here. Because of its age, NASA may have suspected that the old chips may have worn out, which they tried to remedy by deploying standby memories, but this attempt failed, writes SlashGear.

After the first unsuccessful attempt, the engineers came up with a much more complex repair, this time with success. During the operation, they were able to deploy Hubble’s standby devices from Earth, bringing to life their computer, which eventually included the software needed for normal operation.

NASA’s prowess sheds light on the genius of the engineers who worked 31 years ago to create a tool that can revive itself more than three decades later. Of course, it also came to light that in 2009 Hubble underwent an on-site maintenance / repair.

Designed for its successor, the American-European-Canadian-developed James Webb space telescope is expected to be released on October 31 this year and will be operational in November. He is scheduled to perform his duties for at least ten years.
