Hubble at Fifteen


It’s the 15th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope

so you know where my wallpaper for the week is coming
from.

But to echo Aussie
Don Armstrong’s comments earlier
about NASA and where it
is going (or not going), how is it we can’t find some money
to keep the Hubble Space Telescope up there and creating
science that is difficult, if not impossible, to do any other
way?

What are our priorities? Why do we spend billions a year
fighting wars but can’t find the money to fund the only
large, space-based telescope there is? Sigh.
