"(...)Boiled down, this plan is eminently reasonable: See how return to flight goes, and then freshly consider what to do about Hubble. The new administrator has wisely opened the door for a new look at the future of America's most productive astronomical instrument. adAstra

"The Hubble has extended our look back in time to the edges of the universe," says Tony England, a NASA astronaut on Apollo programs and on Spacelab 2, now a University of Michigan engineering professor. "Clearly, the things that Hubble has contributed have changed astronomy."

"I've made this cute little favicon (icon, that shows at the URL and favorites) to put at Save the It's only 16 x 16 pixels but shows Hubble protection door open and a spiral galaxy. Quite a feat to squeeze a bus sized super telescope and a whole galaxy in 256 pixels!

Editorial - The Whirlpool Galaxy

The Whirlpool Galaxy. Please, please, take a good look at the Whirlpool Galaxy. Now think about it... Try to understand exactly what you are seeing. Dear God! We are looking at a galaxy! A whole galaxy! That milky, bright "substance" are BILLIONS of stars. Stars like our Sun. Those pinkish arms are " star-formation factories, compressing hydrogen gas and creating clusters of new stars." Do you understand? We are seeing a truly wonder! How can we, humans, locked in our atmospheric "Plato Cave" see such a thing? Hubble, the orbiting space wonder, brought it to us... Oh please, let's rise our eyes from books and read the true writings of God! Let's stop bombing each other and use a few billion dollars to save the glasses that allow us to see God...

Quotation of the Day
"Well, President Bush has chosen scientist Michael Griffin to be the new NASA Administrator. And he's ordered him to save the Hubble Telescope and build a new manned space vehicle. Kind of ironic, isn't it, George Bush telling a rocket scientist what to do. Ever think you would see that?" Jay Leno
Ha! Ha! Ha! Loved that one!
