On January 21st she sent a letter to O'Keefe asking him to appoint an independent panel of outside experts to assess the risks, costs, and benefits of another Hubble servicing mission and to make a report to Congress.
The cost of such a device is likely to run into the hundreds of millions of dollars, comparable to that of a Hubble servicing mission, but since the same type of robot could be used to safely bring down other large satellites in the future, it's a cost NASA is willing to bear.
When NICMOS was installed during the second Hubble servicing mission (S&T: June 1997, page 34), it carried enough nitrogen ice to chill its detectors for about five years.
Astronaut John Grunsfeld plans to keep an in-flight journal during the upcoming Hubble servicing mission.
It has fallen victim to the budget ax, because the space agency has been unable to absorb unanticipated costs associated with other programs like the upcoming Hubble servicing mission and the long prelaunch delays of the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
His technical expertise was extremely helpful in the many roles he fulfilled, not the least of which was his part in the successful Hubble servicing missions.
As an example, one participant excoriated former NASA administrator Sean O'Keefe's decision to cease Hubble servicing missions because of safety concerns.
If confirmed, this new observation once again shows the power of the Hubble Space Telescope to explore and opens a new chapter in our search for potentially habitable environments in our solar system," said John Grunsfeld, an astronaut who participated Hubble servicing missions and now serves as NASA's associate administrator for science in Washington.
O'Keefe had summarily canceled future Hubble servicing missions in mid-January 2004, out of concerns for astronaut safety in the wake of the Columbia disaster.
