The Hubble space telescope is probably the most famous telescope in the world, even though technically it’s not on Earth. It’s been working since 1990 and has been serviced 5 times, upgrading with each visit. However on Friday one of 3 remaining gyroscopes failed leaving the spacecraft without enough gyros to perform normal spacecraft operations.
However there are plans for this which will squeeze more life out of the spacecraft for the near future.
