Kepler space telescope unusable

The wheels that keep the planet hunting Kepler space telescope have a problem. Two of the four of them don't work now, so the telescope cannot aim and steady itself. Very sad, one of the greater projects of science. Here's the story:

Saw that in the news. Now scientists are trying to figure out some other way to continue to use the telescope; I hope they can figure something out.

I hope they can figure out a way to make use of it still. Can't wait for the Webb Telescope:
