Hubble Status Report
Science observations using Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 2 and the Advanced Camera for Surveys’ Solar Blind Channel began last week, and a full schedule of observations are planned for this week.
Hubble engineers remain on track to restart the NICMOS cryocooler around mid-November.
Hubble engineers completed initial testing on Side B of the spare Science Instrument Command and Data Handling (SI/C&DH) system, currently in the cleanroom at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Over the weekend the team continued troubleshooting the intermittent problem with Side A.
