  • Save the Hubble

    Considering the amount of data the Hubble Telescope has gathered, and can still gather, it would be idotic just to let it fall...

    It is my understanding that the hubble, without the expected repair/update mission, will be operational until about 2008. NASA's next deep space telescope, capable of putting hubble to shame, is due to launch by 2009.

    The Hubble is not in the same orbit as the ISS, as such NASA has been forced to deal with the development of contingency plans for a mission unlike anything it has had to deal with before after the recent loss of the Columbia shuttle. New requirements and procedures for all missions have simply made the Hubble mission too costly in terms of dollars and the risk of human lives.

    Yeah. I just happened to be watching the NASA channel when they had the press briefing on this very issue. :-)

          Hmmm it seems that the telescope is becomming out dated.. i think it has served its purpose and should make way for the next generation of telescopes...
