Ending 30 years of ‘service’. The ‘body’ is no longer working. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has become virtually obsolete. This time NASA issued an official statemen. Hubble has been replaced by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). NASA is going to send this powerful telescope into space by the end of this year.
The past three decades, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has been constantly monitoring the activity of the universe. Every moment of activity was monitored for further analysis.
The Hubble Telescope was launched in 1990. Since then, it has proven itself to be the main weapon in many of NASA’s groundbreaking discoveries. The Hubble Telescope is a well-known and trusted name to astronomers. But this time its life is probably coming to an end. As a result, the space telescope has not been working since last Sunday, June 13. Or better said, its payload computer is no longer working.
NASA says the main Hubble Telescope did not detect any errors in that sense. Other necessary equipments for scientific research are in running mode. The problem was seen in the payload computer. An attempt was made to remove it from the ground station on June 14.
But to no avail. According to a NASA statement, “This payload computer is a very important part of the Hubble Telescope. It sends instructions on when and how to operate the telescope’s other scientific research instruments. It also monitors the health of the telescope. ” But that master control system is corrupted. At the end of the Hubble era, the James Webb Space Telescope is now embarking on a new journey into space. No matter how advanced the technology, Hubble’s nostalgia is eternal.
