#2023. W 27 D 1 GMT +08:00. Indicate #181 days to go in 2023. A new month, called July, mostly indicates a semester has passed. As we found in the image, the medium-resolution spectroscopy sensor, which is just one of the instrument’s four modes and one of the seventeen overall, receives less light than expected. The problem is observed only in the long-wavelength channels of the spectrometer. Meanwhile, to compensate for the difference between the data in June 2022 and May 2023, scientists are testing a learning software that creates a correction on wavelength and time as we see how the introduction of the coefficient will normalize the situation. Nevertheless, the cases are still under study to minimize the risks of further challenges.
