Don't save Hubble - replace it?

Posted on Sunday, February 06 2005 @ 23:58:52 CET by

A scientist said that NASA could save as much as $1.2 billion by replacing the Hubble with a lighter telescope, instead of doing a robotic or human mission to repair it.
The Hubble Origins Probe, dubbed "Hubble Lite" by the head of the institute that runs the Earth-orbiting Hubble, would use a streamlined mirror along with two advanced instruments already built, Colin Norman, a physics and astronomy professor at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, told the House Science Committee.

Norman estimated the cost of the replacement at $991 million, and the committee said that a repair mission could cost as much as $2.2 billion, according to documents distributed at the hearing.
