NASA has restored a gyroscope at the satellite Hubble


The space agency NASA has issued today the report in which I have specified that the problem with work of the main and additional gyroscope at the flying observatory satellite of Hubble has been eliminated - approximately at the beginning of this month, this problem was found out how the satellite took pictures near borders of the young galaxy of DSF2237B-1 in which actively there is a process of formation of planets. Then specialists of NASA have registered malfunction in work of the main gyroscope and have far off addressed additional - however and that has begun to give signs not of quite correct work. Thus, scientific research activity of the satellite has been suspended.

Today specialists of NASA have noted that the problem with an additional gyroscope has been fixed and that the first also approaches normal indicators of work. Changes have happened during last days off during which the special department of diagnostics of the space center was engaged in registration and hunt for micro malfunctions in the module Hubble. The first sign of success of repair were again received pictures of the remote young galaxy which have been shot with the chamber Wide Field Camera 3 tool - he is responsible for registration of the most part of interesting pictures.

Should noting that repair process took place not so smoothly too as experts as during diagnostics it was found out that the additional gyroscope breaks communication with the basic counted on it and to experts it was necessary to look for an alternative way of emergency shutdown and repeated turning on of the module.

However, was further with hardly any trouble at all - at the moment the flying observatory satellite Hubble continues the research mission, pleasing us with new statistical and visual data. It should be noted the fact that NASA isn't going to refuse further operation and support of the telescope, even in spite of the fact that "the life term" has already exceeded it 15 years - future James Webb telescope will work with him shoulder to shoulder.
