been up there 25 years!
Very nice - very pretty and very interesting in an academic sort of way. BUT what have we learned that is useful, and I mean useful not just 'Oh so that's what it looks like' type of thing ? Untill we have at least some capability [or even the will to try] to visit the places it is looking at all we have are pretty pictures. It's no use saying we think there may be a planet near star XYZ25 if we have no possible means of going there for instance. Knowledge for it's own sake is of little value.
Happy Birthday Hubble (space telescope)
