New technologies that excite the geeks
Crashing HubbleNasa`s planned maintenance mission to the Hubble Space Telescope will be postponed until next year.
01 November 2008
Nasa`s planned maintenance mission to the Hubble Space Telescope will be postponed until next year. The telemetry from the space telescope streaming down to Nasa`s screens suddenly went red; Hubble`s command system for sending data to the ground had failed suddenly. Not quite the blue screen of death, but Hubble decided to go into `safe mode`. The astronauts, who were planning a maintenance trip next month, apparently don`t have the training to repair the current failure. New workers will need to be briefed before the mission can be resumed. One would think the original team knows where the reset button is.
