RE: (meteorobs) Re: meteorobs-digest V3 #180

The news item did not mention whether the failure of the gyro would affect
NASA's shifting of the Hubble so as to minimize exposure to Leonids
meteors. The failure of this fourth gyro apparently puts Hubble out of
commission for further observations until the shuttle crew can effect
repairs, however.

  The failure will not allow HST to point toward the anti-Leonid radiant.
Cross your fingers.
