Hubblecast 77: Hubble and the Bermuda Triangle of Space
The story of Hubble’s relationship with the South Atlantic Anomaly
18 September 2014
Above the Earth's atmosphere, along Hubble's path, is a mysterious region known as the South Atlantic Anomaly.
When satellites pass through this area they are bombarded with swarms of intensely high energy particles.
This can produce "glitches" in astronomical data, malfunctioning of on-board electronics, and has even shut down unprepared spacecraft for weeks!
This Hubblecast tells the story of what happens to Hubble in this hazardous region.
