Hubble Telescope - From Discovery's Window

Hubble Telescope - From Discovery's Window Astronomy Education History Social Studies Aviation & Space Exploration STEM

Astronauts flying American space shuttles visited Hubble from time to time. The visits began soon after the orbiting space telescope was launched (to correct her vision) and continued as she began to age.  

In this image, we see Hubble tethered to Discovery during one of those repair visits.
