Trouble for Hubble.

I read today that NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe wants to let Hubble die. That's sad, really. Saving it is certainly better than Mr. Bush's idea of going to the moon again (why?) and Mars. Here is a link to the article. Hubble is run from my hometown of Baltimore, and my undergraduate advisor's wife works at the center. I hope that Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (from Baltimore!) is able to accomplish something in the way of saving our beloved Hubble. Geez, leave it to the Bush administration to throw away a technology when we don't have a replacement for it.
