NASA’s risky maneuver to repair Hubble | Digital Trends Spanish

A team of NASA engineers has begun a major and risky maneuver to repair the Hubble space telescope, which stopped working in June of this year. According to those in charge, the problem could be related to the power control unit that supplies a constant voltage supply to the payload computer. For this reason, the engineers began this Thursday, July 15, to change their equipment to an alternative energy unit. Professionals have also indicated that this is a risky maneuver, which could return Hubble to its scientific observations in just a few days. "I think they are going to be successful, but that's not guaranteed," said Paul Hertz, director of NASA's astrophysics division. The telescope has been offline since June 13, when it unexpectedly stopped working. Since then, engineers have c...

Hubble Records Stunning New Image of Jupiter | Digital Trends Spanish

Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, it is possible to see a beautiful and clear image of Jupiter, when the planet was 653 million kilometers from Earth. The photograph was taken on August 25, 2020 and is useful for researchers to have an updated weather report of the dynamic atmosphere of the planet, as well as its icy moon, Europa, which can also be seen in the image. POT. At registry it is possible to perceive how in northern latitudes of Jupiter a bright white storm has begun to form, with an elongated shape that is moving at 560 kilometers per hour. Researchers believe that it could be a more durable spot in the northern hemisphere, different from the well-known Great Red Spot, which is found in the southern hemisphere of the planet and is one of its main characte...
