NASA has finally seen sense:
The US space agency has given the go-ahead for a robotic mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope, Nasa officials have announced.
Nasa chief Sean O’Keefe has asked for a firm mission proposal to be worked up in a year, after which a decision whether to proceed will be made.
“Everybody says: ‘We want to save the Hubble’. Well, let’s go save the Hubble,” Mr O’Keefe said.
Hopefully we shall see another few years of Hubble images.
