NASA delays repair mission to Hubble telescope
By MARCIA DUNN – 19 hours ago
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — NASA said Monday it is delaying its mission to the Hubble Space Telescope until next year because of a serious breakdown of the observatory in orbit.
Space shuttle Atlantis had been scheduled to blast off in just two weeks, but an unexpected problem with the Hubble appeared on Saturday night when the telescope stopped sending science data.
That potentially means a new repair issue for the astronauts to confront — one that they haven't trained for and never anticipated.
The abrupt, mysterious failure of the command and data-handling system for Hubble's science instruments means that the telescope is unable to capture and beam down the data needed to produce its stunning deep space images.
