Launched in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has revolutionized astronomy by providing unprecedented views of the Universe. Hubble's spectral range extends from the ultraviolet, through the visible, and into the near-infrared. NASA will fly a servicing mission in 2008 to bring two new science instruments to Hubble - the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph and the Wide Field Camera 3. New gyros and batteries will extend Hubble's life through 2013.
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.
