I have to say that I really enjoyed this program. I originally thought it was going to be dealing with a lot of Hubble images. To my surprise it was a 30 year history of Hubble. Very informative and enjoyable program. Hope others got to view the program.

Yes, excellent program. I was unaware of how they fixed the telescope, but I learned they rigged the camera to correct the images. Good television.
