I just wish there was some way to get the live feed. We all know there is a delay and the control room cuts to stupid stuff when something shows up in the feed. Busturds!

I'm just curious to how much this whole ordeal costs - the parts and repairs to hubble, the cost of the launch, and possible 2nd launch if needed...did someone say in the Billions? Maybe this is a dumb question, but where do they get all that money?
