NASA’s big announcement reveals that its Hubble Space Telescope is back to work
following recovery from a computer anomaly that made NASA withdraw the telescope for more than a month. NASA shared the news on its official website and the NASA Hubble Instagram page.
Hubble started acting weird on June 13 when the payload computer that controls the science instruments spotted an error in communications with the instruments and put them into safe mode. It is hard for the telescope to continue its mission.
NASA Administrator Bill Nelson says, “I’m thrilled to see that Hubble has its eye back on the universe, once again capturing the kind of images that have intrigued and inspired us for decades, this is a moment to celebrate the success of a team truly dedicated to the mission. Through their efforts, Hubble will continue its 32nd year of discovery, and we will continue to learn from the observatory’s transformational vision.”
Hubble’s contributions were regular and recently, captured an image of a star cluster known as NGC 6380.
