Proba-1 was saved by a software patch written specifically for the satellite, which - once loaded - allowed the star trackers to distinguish between hot pixels and real stars. The star trackers are apparently working "as good as new" now, even with degraded CCDs. The proof is in the pudding - at the right is a farewell shot of Olympic Park that the satellite shot last week.
