It's the end of an era...from the article:

The Hubble Space Telescope has continued to resist efforts by NASA last week to bring its payload computer back online.

It has now been more than a week since the computer halted on Sunday 13 June. An attempt to restart it the following Monday failed with initial indications pointing to a failing memory module.

At the time, a NASA spokesperson told The Register that the veteran telescope only required one of its four memory modules and so planned to swap to a backup module in order to resume operations.

According to NASA, "the command to initiate the backup module failed to complete." The team had another crack at bringing up both modules on Thursday 17 June but again failed.
