Hubble gets a reprieve

The Hubble Space Telescope is to get one final servicing mission to repair and upgrade it so that it will last until the deployment of its replacement, the James Webb Space Telescope.

I think that this is great news. I've been a big fan of Hubble for some time; some of the pictures have been amazing and the science that it has enabled has been wonderful. I'm glad that we're not losing this window on the universe before there's a replacement for it.
