writes "NASA says it plans to fix the Hubble Space Telescope by remote control this week.
The Hubble stopped beaming information to Earth about two weeks ago, when a data unit on the telescope completely failed.
Scientists on Tuesday said they will bypass the failed unit and switch to a back-up system to restart the flow of information.
The computer glitch forced NASA to postpone a shuttle mission this month to repair the Hubble.
That shuttle mission has been postponed until next year."
