Deorbit, It Is...

Well, NASA has decided to go for deorbiting Hubble instead of repairing it. They plan on using a automatic docking rocket to guide it back into the earth's atmosphere for an ocean landing. I'm pretty bummed about this. The good thing is that they have predicted that the current batteries and gyroscopes will last until 2008-2010. That's plenty of time to capture some more excellent images, I'd imagine. Hopefully, they are developing something even stronger and more impressive than the already remarkable Hubble telescope.
