  14. Hubble telescope will get upgrade Nasa chief Mike Griffin says shuttle astronauts will be sent to service the Hubble Space Telescope. The orbiting observatory has astounded astronomers and the public alike with its amazing pictures of the cosmos, but it will soon fail unless serviced. Dr Griffin told Nasa employees that recent modifications to the shuttle launch system meant he felt it was now safe to send a crew to work on Hubble. The mission, which will use the shuttle Discovery, should launch in 2008. It's a great day for science, a great day for discovery, a great day for inspiration Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski "We are going to add a shuttle servicing mission - to the Hubble space telescope - to the shuttle's manifest to be flown before [the orbiter] retires," Dr Griffin told an audience at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland where the Hubble programme is managed. Without servicing, the observatory is not expected to last more than two or three years. Its batteries and gyroscopes, which are used to point the telescope, are degrading and they will now be replaced. The shuttle crew will also install two new instruments: the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3), and the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS). The new instruments will improve significantly Hubble's ability to see distant, faint objects in the early Universe. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/6102690.stm Best News IMHO!
