30 years of the HST

Post by rwilkinson » Sun Apr 12, 2020 12:59 pm

It's amazing to think that the Hubble Space Telescope was launched thirty years ago this month.
Originally designed for a 15-year mission (but almost written off after its initial problems with the mirror) it's still going after three decades (and four servicing trips from the Space Shuttle).

I've just listened to this BBC Radio4 programme all about it:
