Sorry for all the links to news articles, but how can one not promote news about a mission to repair the Hubble Telescope? I remember all the hype when it was launched, the dismay when it turned out the mirror specs were wrong, the awe and amazement when the mirror flaw was corrected (through a compensating lens, I believe) and the just…stunning images that Hubble produced. I think many (myself included) take it for granted now – “oh, we discovered a planet? look at that tremendous picture!” – but this mission is a reminder that we should not.
