NASA Hubble Space Telescope is different from the severe pointing failure.

Cape Canaveral, Fla. (AP) – The Hubble Space Telescope has been removed from the problem of a serious point.
NASA announced on Monday that one of Hubble’s Zero scopes failed last Friday. Although it was expected – this year the first Zero was expected to go for some time – the surprise came when the backup was not okay on Saturday.
Consequently, Hubble is in the so-called safe mode and all science observations are inhabit.
The 28-year-old telescope has been had trouble with its first zero scores. Spacewalking shuttle astronauts transferred all six in 2009 during the last servicing mission. Three of them are now considered unusable.
Kenneth Sembach, director of a Space Telescope Science Institute, said, “I think that Hubble is now in good hands, I do.” “The fact is that we have some liver problems, this is a long tradition with the Observatory.”
During the observation, Gyroscopes are required to indicate 340-mile-high (540-kilometer-high) Hubble in the right direction. The precise point is essential: in the astronomer universe, deep colleagues use the telescope to reveal remote solar systems as well as galaxies and black holes. Last week, astronomers said they had discovered the first moon out of our solar system with the help of Hubble.
After launch in 1990, Hubble has seen more than 1.3 million views.
Hamble’s two gyroscopes are working fine, Sambach said. The last one was in reserve; He said that some years ago it was closed after showing “funny behaviour”, even though the work was going on. This is what the Flight Controller changed on Saturday as a backup; By Monday, it was still not working as expected.
Sembach said that everyone wants to be careful in repairing.
“We do not want to spoil things,” he said.
Hubble generally uses three gyroscopes to work, but can be obtained from one or the other, which has been done earlier. However, it leaves a little room for extra breaks. In addition to unnecessary, three functional gyroscopes also provide more flexibility in pointing, Sambach said.
From the Baltimore Institute, he said, “We will be fine.” “I am sure Hubble has many years of good science before it.”
