  1. When they re position these telescopes I’m guessing they need some sort of thrust which requires fuel. Anyone know how much fuel is on board and how long it’s supposed to last?


    • They use motor driven (solar array powered) gyroscopes to torque the satellites to new attitude settings. Maneuvering fuel is rarely use. It’s reserved for offsetting orbit decay, etc.
