One of the special memories in my youth occurred 30 years ago today when one of aviation mentors in the space program invited me to the STS-31 Discovery Hubble launch. I made this rendering as a keepsake.

I remember the well deserved criticism NASA took for using a cheaper contractor which did not shape the lens correctly and then not testing it before they sent it up.
They were able to do a fix on the Hubble which has sent back incredible pictures of our universe up

Gossip dies when it hits a wise person’s ears.
Rumor and lies are created by haters, spread by fools, and unfortunately believed by the naïve!
