Due to the breakage the telescope has interrupted the work and has been entered into the safe mode. He will remain in such situation until his operators don't find a solution. It is known that the device has in total six gyroscopes as it has been designed with repeated duplication of all systems. However at the same time he uses only three. "The broken gyroscope badly worked about a year, and his breakage didn't become surprise. Two other gyroscopes of the same type have already failed in April of this year. Three remained gyroscopes are better in the technical plan and therefore have to have more long service life", - have noted in NASA.
