1. Hubble may get a reprieve

    Potentially big news from NASA. Servicing of the Hubble Telescope may soon resume.

    Previously, “inspired” by the current administration’s desires to drop everything and fly to Mars (I suggest they go personally, and leave today) the Hubble was going to be left to die a slow death and eventually to burn up in our atmosphere. Hardly a burial fit for a project that may be one of the most successful projects in scientific history.

    NASA administrator Michael Griffin said Friday he would proceed with planning for a shuttle visit to the Hubble Space Telescope, despite a two-month delay in the fleet’s return to flight.

    However, it seems Shuttle service is being delayed further amongst new safety concerns.

    But, it is a grand step in the right direction. I applaud NASA today for correcting their course.
