NASA’s Hubble space telescope is cruising the cosmos in safe mode after its payload computer suddenly crashed on June 13 according to a NASA statement.

The computer is responsible for coordinating and controlling all of the science instruments aboard the telescope which means that, until technicians on the ground can get it up and running again, the world’s most famous telescope is about as useful as the dead iPod in your junk drawer.
