After a massive software failure of the orbital telescope Hubble NASA fully resumed work
Apparently, the space Agency managed to fix breakdowns in the system expensive Hubble telescope, said “you Know. sa”.
“NASA has resumed research the main camera (the Advanced Camera for Surveys, ACS) of the Hubble, the operation of which was suspended on 28 February. Final tests conducted on March 6, camera returned in working regime”, – stated in the message.
NASA said that the problem with the camera occurred after incorrect update its software. The task force has made repeated tests to restart the memory and check the whole process.
Earlier Hubble space telescope transmitted to Earth new photos of the ice giants Uranus and Neptune.
“Thanks to the new images became known that Uranus was brighter polar cap of clouds, and Neptune visible dark storm. In addition, it is noted that at the North pole of Uranus is good enough an enormous area of white color, which is likely to be long-term and storm apparently formed due to seasonal changes in the atmospheric flows”, – stated in the message.
At the same time, journalists say, the planets became visible the previously unseen changes.
“In the picture of Neptune shows a dark anticyclone, appeared in the southern hemisphere of the planet. This is the fourth anticyclone, which oversees Hubble”, – underlined in the message.
On the eve of NASA employees published the latest pictures of the satellite “Kepler”, which he made before the completion of the mission
Space telescope “Kepler” has sent the last signal to Earth on 30 October 2018. The scientists planned the mission of the telescope will last 3.5 years, but he worked for 9 years, 7 months and 23 days, revolutionizing our understanding of exoplanets. The first image of the “Kepler” was filmed in 2009. The latest space telescope (“the last light”) was received on 25 September 2018.
Camera Kepler had 42 of the image sensor charge-coupled device (CCD), each with a resolution of 1024?2200 pixels. Empty squares in the rendered image are consequences of the problem when the CCD was out of order for several years.
