    Thanks for the link Nereid. The Hubble telescope has been an invaluable resource and to scrap it at this point seems such a waste.

    It ain't over yet, but it's not looking good for Hubble...

    Saving the Hubble

    Maybe we could fly up some specially designed independently controlled and powered gyros and attach them to the structure (by designing some clever automated mechanism?), via a simple non-shuttle mission.

    Then co-ordinate their (new independent) control systems with the Hubble's original gyros, for a 'cheap' patched-on replacement.
