A team at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center designs and builds the special tools and aids astronauts need when they service the Hubble Space Telescope. Engineers describe working with the astronaut crew and developing tools to meet specific challenges as well as inventing new tools that will help NASA astronauts well into the future.
The Hubble would not be able to do what it does without the help of a small group of dedicated engineers and technicians at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. During HST Servicing Missions the Space Telescope Operations Control Room at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center becomes a very busy place.
Wide-Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) was installed in Dec 1993 and used to obtain high resolution images of astronomical objects. This camera was removed in the last servicing mission so it is no longer in service.
