Paperwork makes the telescope go ‘round

hubble_paperclipBack in the day when I worked on Hubble, I had an ever-growing mound of paperwork that included FAQs, software instructions, how-to guides for the instruments, and the usual exponentially increasing stack of forms to fill out and process.

How I wish I had this way cool Hubble paperclip to hold those sheaves together!

Now I just need to figure out how to mass produce paperclips bent into a BA shape.
