NASA Decides to Fix the Hubble Telescope

Hosted by

Since it was launched into orbit in 1990, the Hubble Telescope has produced spectacular images of the universe, popularized astronomy and advanced the understanding of space. But without repairs and adjustments, it could be lost to science. After the Columbia disaster, NASA decreed that repairing the Hubble was unsafe for astronauts. Today, under a new administrator, the agency changed its mind.
