Must read

As the Hubble space telescope continues to suffer from issues, NASA is working hard to get it fixed.

The instruments were offline due to a malfunctioning computer on June 13th.

All of the science instruments were placed into safe mode, and the rest of the telescope remained operational.

The payload computer tests discovered that the problem was not in the computer’s memory, but rather in the science instrument command and data handling unit (SI C & DH).

The team is studying a unit that formats commands and data, and a power regulator that ensures a consistent voltage to the payload computer’s hardware.

Once the damaged equipment has been found, the team will most likely have to use backup hardware that is already mounted on the spaceship.

We will try this on Earth, in computer simulations first.

The preceding formatting unit had a similar problem in 2008.

In 2009, a service mission replaced the complete SI C & DH unit.

Full functions will be restored soon.
