This is my second episode about Hubble repairs -- the first was back in 2008. You can find it in the archive if you're curious. I really do wonder how they could possibly take a part up there and then discover that it doesn't fit during a space walk. That's astounding to me.
Are you happy I'm back to news items after a week of bad movie ideas? Here's a cool photo of the repairs.
I think it would be hard to concentrate on repairs with a view like that. I think Mike Massimino would agree. Mike is one of two astronauts twittering from orbit. Is it just me, or does Mike's Twitter background look better suited to Astronaut Barbie?
