    The Hubble Space Telescope, launched more than 30 years ago, has halted operations, following the failure of a payload computer critical to the operation of the spaceborne observatory.

    At around 4pm EDT on June 13, the payload computer on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) experienced a failure, leading to a shutdown of the world’s best-known spaceborne observatory.

    Initial analysis suggests a degrading memory module within the payload computer may have triggered the shutdown of the Hubble Space Telescope.

    It's a stereotype meme. Think middle-class white women that is overly demanding. The type that demands to speak to the manager in order to complain about poor service, or be anti-something, such as a COVID naysayer, or someone that talks down to people. The type of person that thinks they are better than everyone else.

    In this case, send Karen. She'll fix it. And it'll stay fixed this time. Forever. 'Cuz Karen fixed it.

    i'm aware of the karen meme, but the context of sending a karen to "fix" something doesn't even remotely make sense.
