The Second Servicing Mission

Abstract

The unqualified success of the first servicing mission led to a continuous stream of press releases about new phenomena and new details of the structure and nature of various astronomical objects. It also led to optimism about the second servicing mission, in which Hubble was to be outfitted with new and better detectors. After all, the scientific instruments used for Hubble had been developed more than 10 years previously and were no longer quite state of the art. Work on the second-generation instruments had already started when Hubble was launched, and the new instruments would contain the technology of the early 1990s.
