Hubble Repaired and Improved (Video)


Recently Hubble Space Telescope was repaired and upgraded with a new equipment. I stubled across this cool video from Hubble Cast. I am so glad that they take time to create such beautiful educational videos for mortal people like me to learn about what’s going on up there. It’s pretty short, just 6 minutes, but in high quality and has a lot of space footage and Hubble pictures.

Hubble got some repairs and a new improved camera. Camera is not fully calibrated yet, testing and preparations are under way currently and it is expected to be fully operational in September. Recent Jupiter impact photo was taken with this camera even when it was not fully ready yet. Hubble is truly one of the most successful space projects and one of my favourites, because of all the colorful pictures we got thanks to it.
