Hubble Telescope records about 1.5 million observations in space before shutting down
At present, NASA scientists are trying their best to start it again by removing the fault in its system, but so far they have not achieved any success in this work.
New Delhi: The Hubble Telescope, located at an altitude of about 500 and a half kilometers from the Earth in space, has been stalled for the last nine days. The reason for this is a fault in one of its computers, due to which it has now gone into safe mode.
15 lakh observation of Hubble Telescope:
For the last nine days, the signal 'Keep Alive' from the Hubble Telescope has not been received, nor has any picture been received from it. At present, NASA scientists are trying their best to start it again by removing the fault in its system, but so far they have not achieved any success in this work.
18k research papers published on hubble's inputs:
Let us tell you that the technology of this telescope is quite old, but it has established such milestones of exploration in deep space, which would be very difficult for any man-made machine to match.
During its thirty years of service, this telescope has uncovered countless mysteries that we could not have imagined before. Let us tell you that before this telescope came to a standstill, it has done about 15 lakh observations.
With the help of this, about 18 thousand papers of research related to space have been published 9 lakh times so far. This in itself is a strange, but true figure.
During its journey of thirty years, this telescope has not only given information to scientists about nebulae, nova, supernova, but also from different galaxies, millions and billions of km away. You will be surprised to know that it does not have any kind of thruster to change its direction, rather it bends itself by Newton's third law. It takes about 15 minutes to rotate it at 90 degrees.Stay tuned with the newstrack to get fastest updates. Click @englishnewstrack to follow us on Facebook and @newstrackmedia to follow on Twitter.
