Soo... That didn't last long. Apparently the 486 based computer that NASA had on the hubble has now blue-screened and won't respond. Basically when the 486 fired up, a low-voltage power supply had a power surge that took out one of Hubble's cameras, and prevented it from rebooting properly. After that, further unidentified "computer trouble" hit Hubble and caused so many problems that it ended all recovery efforts instantly. Now NASA gets to go through the many logs that is put out to find out what happened and how to fix it.
Sounds like a blast!
Hey all, Dave here. I hope you enjoy the random things that I find across the web, and my spin on what they mean. Feel free to leave any comments if you think I'm way off on something.
