NASA announced today that it has reversed a previous (and insanely stupid, if I may editorialize on the matter) decision regarding the Hubble Space Telescope. The Telescope, which has thus far given us 16 years of the most breathtaking images of space, is in need of repair. NASA head Michael Griffin has countermanded his predecessor's decision and agreed to send a shuttle mission to repair the telescope to keep it operational until at least 2013, extending its expected life by at least four years. Good news for us space geeks.
