Next morning: Hubble Telescope wakes up from “hibernation”

NASA’s Hubble Telescope has been taking a nap for a month since the system failed in late October. But early yesterday, the agency announced that Hubble was awakening. According to NASA, the telescope is now functioning normally and all four active devices are collecting data.

On October 23, NASA first noticed that Hubble’s instrument was not receiving a message from the telescope’s controller. NASA decided to put the telescope in a kind of safe mode while trying to understand what happened. Its safe mode takes a long time to get out due to Hubble’s hardware sensitivity. Sudden changes in power or temperature are not good for its life. The telescope is now 31 years old — Hubble may be nearing the end of its useful life in space. NASA will use the telescope to the end, but plans to use it in combination with the Webb Telescope, which will finally be launched on December 22nd.
