High Apogee for the Hubble

SPACE DAILY sports the hopeful headline Shuttle Or Not Hubble Will Be Saved

"Indications are growing that the aging Hubble Space Telescope will not be allowed to die -- even if the U.S. space shuttle fleet will not be used to save it. More and more, it appears that NASA -- or even an international consortium of some kind -- will deploy a robotic space mission sometime in the next few years to service or repair the telescope."
Well... maybe. As the article points out there are several very large hurdles in the way. On some level this may well be just a NASA noh play titled: 'Hey, We Tried."
