Good News from NASA

I was very happy to see this:

NASA will send a space shuttle and seven astronauts to repair and upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope as soon as May 2008, overturning an earlier decision that the complex mission posed too much of a risk.

I firmly believe that one of the most important strengths of the United States is our commitment to science and technology. The Hubble telescope is a tremendous achievement of engineering, one we should be proud of, and one which can produce scientific advances no other device could.
