New push to save Hubble

A Reuters report says that a renewed call is being made for NASA to make necessary repairs to the Hubble Space Telescope.

In a letter addressed to interim NASA chief Frederick Gregory, U.S. senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) said the agency has already promised $291 million in funds to repair Hubble in 2005, and that failing to carry out those repairs could be considered against the law.

The American Astronomical Society also made a statement Wednesday calling for NASA to continue servicing Hubble.
