NASA astronauts celebrate 29 years for the Hubble Space Telescope

GMU - Only On

5/17/2019 – When it launched in 1990, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope was only designed to last 15 years. Last month, the iconic telescope celebrated 29 years of science thanks in large part to the brave astronauts who upgraded it over five separate missions.

It’s been 10 years this week since astronauts last visited Hubble, and the telescope continues to deliver breathtaking images and new science results. To date Hubble has taken more than 1.4 million observations and counting.
