No Green Light for Hubble Rescue

NASA’s top administrator sparked reports of a definite Hubble rescue mission when he told the agency’s employees on Monday, “we’ve got an option we’re ready to go with.” But NASA has no formal plans to repair the aging space telescope and is not likely to be able to fund such a mission even if it did.

So many different reports! At this rate I don’t think we’ll know the Hubble’s fate for sure until we see it being repaired ourselves.
