NASA's Racing Against Time To Fix $600 Million Spacecraft
The Kepler space telescope has gone into "emergency mode" and is burning fuel fast.By Ryan Biek | April 10, 2016
NASA is scrambling to save a $600 million spacecraft that's gone into "emergency mode."
Experiencing what one researcher called a "spacecraft emergency," the Kepler space telescope is now rapidly burning through fuel, and NASA is running out of time to save it.
Engineers first discovered the telescope was in emergency mode Thursday and believe it actually entered that stage at least a day before.
