Thanks for the link. This brought back alot of memories. I was the financial manager for the Hubble Flight Systems and Servicing Project Office at Goddard Space Flight Center from 1994 though 1998. This was after the first servicing mission (that corrected the flawed optics) and through the next servicing mission, which installed two new instruments, new solar arrays, new gyros, a solid state data recorder and alot of other replacements and upgrades.

The fantastic pictures that Hubble has produced over the years and the scientific results make me proud to have been associated with the project.
