The Hubble Space Telescope has been in safe mode since June 13 2021, when its payload computer malfunctioned. NASA has been working ever since to fix Hubble from the ground and believe the problem lies in the Science Instrument Command and Data Handling unit (SI C&DH). The Mission Operations team at the Space Telescope Operations Control Center believe they may have a fix.
