Hubble turns twenty and doesn't even act like a teenager

Wow has it been Twenty years already. The Hubble has done for science's image more than any other scientific instrament out there. When talk of letting the Hubble go by the wayside and die in orbit my heart sank. and then the fantastic rescue mission, the most complicated repair mission in space yet.

For me the greatest discovery of Hubble has to be when we pointed the lens to the darkest place in the Sky. The images we received of millions of galaxies sent shivers down my spine.

Here's a link to some great pictures.
