NASA's space eye-sight weakens

NASA's space eye-sight weakens
The Hubble space telescope's newest, most advanced camera has shut down after power failure. NASA says two of the unit's main capabilities are unlikely to be restored, but added the telescope itself is still robust.

The camera was used to survey huge areas of sky for scientific purposes.

It will be replaced in a repair mission planned for 2008.
