The Hubble Space Telescope has to take a Break Due to Malfunction

The other three remaining gyros which are available for use for technically enhanced as well as to get a longer operational lives. But even if the gyroscope doesn't come back online, there are ways to point Hubble and continue observing with as few as one gyroscope."This is not a catastrophic failure, but it is a sign of mortality", says astronomer Robert Kirshner of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass. This essentially leaves Hubble with only two fully functional ones. "Safe mode puts the telescope into a stable configuration until ground control can correct the issue and return the mission to normal operation", NASA said in a. Two of these advanced gyroscopes are now working. The news started out as rumors on Twitter but the Hubble's deputy mission head at the Space Telescope Science Institute, Rachel Osten confirmed the authenticity of the tweets. In a series of tweets and a press release, the space agency revealed that one of the three gyroscopes (gyros) that is now in use failed. Right now, HST is in safe mode while we figure out what to do. The Anomaly Review Board is investigating the issue further and should have a decision soon. The 28-year-old Hubble Telescope has been key to NASA and independent research of space.

"If the outcome of this investigation results in recovery of the malfunctioning gyro, Hubble will resume science operations in its standard three-gyro configuration", NASA said in a statement on Monday.

"While reduced-gyro mode offers less sky coverage at any particular time, there is relatively limited impact on the overall scientific capabilities", NASA added. The Hubble Space Telescope was designed with several redundancies in the instance of inevitable part failure. In the meantime, two of the telescope's scientific instruments - the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph and the Advanced Camera for Surveys - stopped working due to power supply failures.Good as newSpace shuttle missions returned five times to Hubble over the space telescope's first 19 years to fix it.

Fight Wilder and fury could not take place
Fury also said he had, "The psychological edge" because Wilder's nickname of the "Bronze Bomber" means, "A third-placed man". He was stripped of the titles and ultimately did not fight for 31 months until returning to the ring in June.

"As a result, Hubble remains in safe mode". During this time, all of the spacecraft's instruments are shut down, while only the most essential systems needed to keep the vehicle running will remain functional.

Launched in 1990, Hubble has had trouble with its gyroscopes before.

"In many respects, James Webb is going to be very superior to Hubble, but not in every respect", said Prof.
