An investigation of the Hubble safing incident indicated a complete loss of the Control Unit/Science Data Formatter - Side A, which is part of the spacecraft Command and Data Handling system. Activities are underway to switch the Hubble Observatory over to Side B, in order to allow science observing to resume. This is the first time Side B has been exercised since before launch. A spare Science Instrument Command and Data Handling System is available at GSFC and will begin Flight Acceptance for delivery by January 2009. The Agency has determined that the Hubble telescope servicing should restore C&DH system redundancy. SOMD is studying launch options in light of these developments. (Target work to date of Feb 17, 2009.) Some FY09 Science Operations funds, including GO budget, will be redirected to help fund the launch slip (~$10M/mo). 9 Astrophysics Division Accomplishments and Significant Events

The Targets for WBS 907524 were subsequently reduced by

$3.2M (the ADP bow wave) so that those funds could be used elsewhere. The Targets for WBS 399131 were reduced to reflect end-of-year pullback of funds from the Centers that were not going to be spent.
