Operational Readiness Review for Switch to Side B of the SIC&DH
The Hubble team will conduct a meeting at Goddard later this week to review in full detail its operational readiness to switch the observatory to the “B” side of the SIC&DH and the Data Management System. This will be followed by a series of top management reviews at Goddard and within the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters, seeking management concurrence to proceed with the side switch. Potentially science observations could resume in mid- to-late October.
