An Astronomical observatory or we might say Hubble Space Telescope which is trailing around our universe has been down for few days according to Nasa.

Nasa said, “The payload computer’s purpose is to control and coordinate the science instruments and monitor them for health and safety purposes”.

On Monday, an attempt to restart it failed. Initial indications pointed to a failing computer memory module as the root of the problem, according to NASA. A swap to a backup memory module was likewise unsuccessful.

The payload computer’s technology goes back to the 1980s, and it was replaced in 2009 during routine maintenance. The Hubble Space Telescope, which was launched in 1990 and brought back photos of the solar system, the Milky Way, and distant galaxies, revolutionized astronomy and altered our understanding of the cosmos.

The James Webb Space Telescope, a new and more powerful one, is set to be launched later this year. It’s built to see farther into the universe than ever before.
