Indeed it is. I really thought NASA was going to tank the Hubble due to this Moon, Mars, and beyond bull but I guess they didn't. What a relief about that, though Hubble will inevitable come up for evaluation again, but for now its safe for the astronomers and masses.
well they are not maintaining it, they are kind of upgrading it or whatever they say!
they are only saying they are adding new instruments for getting ultraviolet images. they should have said 'replacing' then.
