Cyhoeddodd y Weinyddiaeth Awyrenneg a Gofod Genedlaethol (NASA) ar 29 Medi amser lleol,Ymchwilio i ddichonoldeb cenhadaeth i godi uchder orbitol telesgop gofod ‘Hubble’cyhoeddi bod cytundeb i wneud hynny wedi’i lofnodi ar Fedi 22 gyda SpaceX.

Yn ôl NASA, cynigiwyd y genhadaeth gan SpaceX mewn cydweithrediad â rhaglen Polaris y sector preifat.Mae rhaglen Polaris ar gyfer dynion busnesJared IsaacmanProsiect dan arweiniad llong ofod â chriw SpaceX“Criw Dragon”teithiau hedfan gofod masnachol gan ddefnyddio“Gwawr Polaris”bwriedir ei roi ar waith ar ôl mis Mawrth 2023. Bydd y genhadaeth yn cynnwys y gweithgaredd allgerbydol cyntaf yn y sector preifat.

The SpaceX and Polaris programs collected technical data from the Dragon spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope,safe rendezvousortrimTransfer to a higher orbitlikeConsider technical issuesDo. The investigation is expected to take up to six months.

In addition, under the agreement signed this time, NASA’s implementation of service missions, funding, competition opportunities, etc. are not planned, and it is said that it is not a unique effort. NASACompanies outside the SpaceX and Polaris programs may offer similar surveysrefers to

Lansiwyd Telesgop Gofod Hubble ym mis Ebrill 1990yn orbit daear iselYn cylchdroi am dros 32 mlyneddRwy’n dal i wneud hynny.Gwennol ofod “Darganfod”Pan gafodd ei ryddhau o , roedd yr uchder tua 615 km, ond mewn orbit daear isel, mae’r uchder yn gostwng yn raddol oherwydd gwrthiant yr atmosffer prin, felly mae Telesgop Gofod Hubble cyfredol ynUchder tua 540kmyn hedfan

Yn y dyfodol agos, mae’n anochel y bydd Telesgop Gofod Hubble yn dychwelyd i’r atmosffer, a NASACanol i ddiwedd y 2030auRwy’n rhagweld. Fodd bynnag, os gallwn ei godi i uchder mwy sefydlog nag yn awr,Potensial am sawl blwyddyn arall o weithreduYmddengys fod Hefyd, mae NASA yn bwriadu cael Telesgop Gofod Hubble, sydd wedi gorffen ei weithrediad, yn cael ei reoli-gollwng neu ei godi i uchder uwch a bydd yn parhau i hedfan am sawl degawd, ond er mwyn gwneud hynny, bydd yn darparu gyriant i’r Hubble. Telesgop Gofod mewn rhyw ffordd.

The Hubble Space Telescope was operated by the Space Shuttle between 1993 and 2009.5 service missionsis a receipt still used for observation“Advanced camera for observing comet hunting (ACS)”or“Wide field camera 3 (WFC3)”are placed on service trips. However, since the retirement of the space shuttle in 2011, it has been impossible to conduct service missions for the Hubble Space Telescope.

Even if maintenance cannot be performed like the Space Shuttle, which included an extensive cargo compartment and robot arm, if it is determined that Crew Dragon can raise the orbital altitude, a new servicing mission for the Hubble Space Telescope will have realize it. Maybe.
