I think a good question would be "what can Hubble and Webb do together that neither could do alone?" Webb will be optimised for longer wavelenths and will likely discover things that would benefit from HST follow-up. Ditching HST into the ocean will be a terrible waste, and after Webb comes on line, we will find out just how big our loss is when our ability to do follow-ups is limited by atmospheric conditions at the big ground-based scopes.wolram said:Question, what will money saved by abandoning the Hubble be spent on ?
It is the James Webb telescope:Pengwuino said:Arent they constructing a new telescope that is an improved version of Hubble? Heard something liek it a long time ago so i might be wrong.
