    It is really going to be a shame when we lose the Hubble.

    Keep your fingers crossed. We may not loose it after all. Senator Mikulski from Maryland is pushing to keep it going. It probably won't do any good, but some astronomers are still hopeful...

    Here's the Hubble website with more background to this.

    What's really cool is that amateur astronomers could discover the next Milky way supernova (or LMC, or SMC, or Andromeda/M31, or any other Local Group galaxy one), but without Hubble we'd lose the ability to take piccies like these, and also lose the chance to understand about a possible grim reaper.
