NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope returned
After a problem brought its science instruments down, the Hubble Space Telescope is now fully functioning. NASA’s Hubble crew recovered the observatory’s Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on December 6th, the latest of the telescope’s instruments to be brought back online after the recent difficulties, the agency announced on December 7th.
“The team will continue testing and creating software alterations for the devices. This would enable them to carry out science operations even if they were to lose synchronization communications in the future “NASA stated in the press release.

After the recent challenges, it is the last of the telescope’s instruments to be brought online, the organization announced on December 7th.
“The team will continue testing and creating software changes for the instruments. Even if they face numerous failed synchronization messages in the future, they will be able to conduct science operations “NASA stated in the press release.
The Collaboration observed
The James Webb Space Telescope, a partnership between NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency, will shortly join Hubble in space. Webb uses infrared technology to make unique observations that supplement Hubble’s.
“NASA anticipates the two observatories to be operational by the end of this month when the Webb Telescope is set to launch. They’ll continue to collaborate long into this decade, allowing us to learn even more about the universe “NASA went on to say in the press release.
