NASA says it’s doing everything it can to keep Hubble alive as long as possible
It was just yesterday that news began to spread about NASA's Hubble Space Telescope experiencing some downtime due to a gyroscope issue, and today NASA has taken the time to provide a brief update on how things are unfolding.
In a lengthy statement, NASA explains that the previous reports are accurate and that Hubble's suite of gyroscopes is currently acting up. More specifically, one of the last three remaining gyros that are required for the telescope to operate efficiently has been showing signs of malfunction, forcing engineers to place the spacecraft in "safe mode" while it figures out what to do.
