I love the Hubble Telescope. It's 17 years old: an impressive late adolescent, wouldn't you say? And to think that NASA was going to let it fall, burning into the atmosphere, until it was saved by a groundswell of astonishment from the public. What, we need to use those dollars to cover a few minutes' fighting in Iraq? That's somehow a better way to spend the money?
Whatever. I like these pictures better than those coming out of Iraq. Tax money spent correctly. Let's keep it up, folks.
