Servicing the Hubble Space Telescope - Mike Massimino

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990 and was serviced by astronauts onboard the Space Shuttle five times. This talk will focus on the final Hubble Space Telescope Servicing Mission, STS-125, which took place in May 2009 on-board Space Shuttle Atlantis. During that mission the crew upgraded the telescope through a series of five spacewalks, setting a record for spacewalking time on a single space shuttle mission. The spacewalks included the first-ever repair in place of Hubble science instruments.
