From Exchange Invest 2082 Tuesday, June 22nd:
Out there beyond Bigworld in the big wide outer space-y thing that surrounds Earth, the Hubble Telescope has been having a blue screen of death week.

Suffice to say if only we could go to conferences, there’s a sporting chance we could get a fitbit clone with more computing power as a freebie.
Naturally, the tricky part is getting it into low earth orbit with a couple of astronauts to help upgrade the system — this falls outside many AAA plans. However apparently there is a back up computer on Hubble which may yet be called into service.
