Last weekend NASA released this statement about the Hubble Space Telescope – and it’s good news! The computer was brought out of the quiescent mode it had been waiting in since the shut down on 16 October. Some engineering checks showed that everything was healthy and ready to restart science operations last Saturday. I haven’t seen anything since, so fingers crossed!
In another welcome development, NASA added an RSS feed for the updates.
A big pat on the back to all the rescue engineers at NASA!
