On October 8th the space shuttle Atlantis will (hopefully) launch on the last manned mission to upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope. It's almost sad
because both the space shuttle and the telescope are coming to the end of their lives. Still,
Here's a little bit about the mission.
There are some awesome pics on this link:
Preparing to rescue Hubble.
Here's a YouTube presentation of the flight:
Hubble service mission.
From what I've gathered this is the last manned mission to Hubble but there will be one more. A rocket will be sent up that will attach to the end of
the telescope and guide it back to Earth, where it will burn up over the ocean.
Here is a link to just a few of the pictures it's taken over the years:

Love and light my friends,
