Aero-News Quote of the Day
"We think it's a relatively straightforward activity...

Source: Preston Burch, who manages the Hubble
program at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. NASA will delay its
mission to the Hubble Space Telescope until next year, after the
orbiting observatory suffered a failure of its command and
data-handling system Saturday night. The problem lies with a
transmission channel on the Hubble Control Unit/Science Data
Formatter, one of many such systems used to relay data from Hubble
to the ground, where it is assembled into images. That channel
failed, causing the telescope to revert to a safe mode... stopping
all further data collection. That failure has stopped the flow of
Hubble's stunning deep-space images. While NASA hopes to have a
backup channel up and running later this week, a permanent repair
will require a new series of tasks for which the Atlantis crew has
not been trained.
