The mission engineers and scientists for the Hubble Space Telescope have been working to correct some technical issues with the gyros that point the venerable space telescope. Hubble went into safe mode a couple of weeks ago and now seems to be back to resuming normal operations.

Join Tony Darnell and Carol Christian as they discuss what happened with Hubble, how the problems were discovered and a fix found. We'll also explore other topics related to Hubble, such as, how much longer will it be around? Will Hubble last long enough to overlap JWST?
