Hubble Space Telescope Almost Back in Action

The famed orbital observatory has recovered from a glitch that suspended its operations earlier this month

It looks like NASA’s famous Hubble Space Telescope has recovered from the glitch that knocked the observatory offline more than two weeks ago.

On Oct. 5, Hubble went into a protective “safe mode” after one of its orientation-maintaining gyroscopes failed. Mission team members tried to recruit a backup gyro, but that instrument refused to behave, returning anomalous readings.
