Hubble’s Big Picture

Just a quick link to the Boston Globe’s Big Picture who took on the most recent Hubble servicing mission. Here’s a sample.

I just love the Earth in the background on this one.

The were some tense moments, stuck pieces, but in the end it looks like it went well.  Although we can’t be sure everything is 100% for a few weeks until everything is put through its paces, initial indications are good.  All the instruments are communicating and sending back what is expected at this point.

Be sure to check out all the spectacular pictures of this mission.
