NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope teams will transition the telescope to operating using one gyroscope instead of three after repeated issues with faulty data halted science operations.

NASA said the 34-year-old space telescope entered safe mode on May 24 to protect the spacecraft because of an ongoing gyroscope issue. The telescope has three gyroscopes in its system that keep Hubble pointed in the right direction. The space agency said one of its three gyros gave faulty telemetry readings, prompting the spacecraft to enter safe mode and suspend science operations. 

The space agency said Hubble remains in good health, and its instruments are stable. 


Issues with Hubble’s gyros have halted science operations previously, most recently in November 2023.

After the latest problem, NASA officials said the team would begin transitioning the spacecraft to operating in one gyro mode. 

Patrick Crouse, Hubble project manager with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, told reporters on Tuesday that this change will “take a little bit of time”…
