The laser gyroscopes on many of today's airplanes work by a similar principle, but theory indicates that an atom-based system would offer 10 billion times as much sensitivity, useful for general-relatively experiments.
We believe strongly that the impact of gyroscopes on the user experience will be as high as the accelerometer case.
If two more of Hubble's six gyroscopes fail, the craft will lose its keen sense of direction - a feature vital to pointing the telescope accurately, explains John Campbell at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
