The Big Picture: Hubble

No shocker here: The Big Picture has a feature on the Hubble servicing mission. Know what else isn’t shocking? It’s fantastic!

Awesome. But I also like picture #6, showing the tools the astronauts used for the repair. You can see the drill that looks like a Star Trek phaser! Appropriate, since the astronauts on the Space Station got a special upload of the new movie so they could watch it.
