Hubble Telescope is a space-based observatory launched by NASA aboard a space shuttle called Discovery in 1990. It is used by researchers to observe some of the far off stars, galaxies and planets in the Solar System. The new additions of state-of-the-technologies have increased the telescope?s lifetime.
The payload computer of the Hubble telescope suffered glitches on June 13 this year. After the computer stopped working, the instruments were kept in a safe configuration and science data collection was suspended. The US space agency recently returned these instruments to operational status after fixing them, enabling the telescope to resume collecting scientific data after a month of suspension.
