The Hubble Space Telescope is celebrating the start of its 30th year with an image of a gigantic galaxy.  This is amazing for an instrument that was defective at the start and needed several astronaut visits over its lifetime.  It is a PR success, the like of which NASA scientists did not think possible.  Hubble has been so successful that the astrological community howls in protest whenever NASA tries to shut it down.  Its life has been extended several times as a result.  But Hubble hasn’t many more years to go if the new James Webb observatory launches successfully in 2021.  Eventually, its machinery will break and there will be no more space visits to get it running again.  Hubble will become a piece of space junk, but its history will live on, a monument to man’s search for answers to the universe.
