First off, hello to you all.
I am new here and I am happy to see the wealth of information I see here.
I have been wondering since I heard about the cancellation of the Hubble Space Telescope program, why?
What I mean is I thought that Pres. Bush is ordering a multi-billion dollar expansion of the U.S. space program, which, from what I've heard, is to
include a series of missions to the moon (w/possible moon base) and even a manned mission to mars.
Then why scrap hubble? I'm no astronomy buff, but from I hear the Hubble has been an invaluable tool in the astronmy field and that some of the most
amazing photos of outerspace have been taken with it.
I'll leave the question open if anybody wants to reply to it.
