Shulou( Report--, December 22 (Xinhua)-- the Hubble Space Telescope is back in operation after fixing a gyroscope malfunction.

UGC 8091 is located in the constellation Virgo, about 7 million light-years from Earth, and astronomers call it "irregular galaxies" because it has no orderly spiral or elliptical appearance.
