Hard and Dangerous Work in HD

I'm currently glued to NASA TV's YouTube channel, with its daily dosage of videos from the Hubble repair mission in glorious HD.

It's quite astonishing to think that the Hubble telescope has been in orbit now for 19 years - I was in university when Hubble was launched into space! It's been out there, faithfully taking tens of thousands of photos of the universe, enlightening us with amazing photos of moons, planets, stars and galaxies.

It's a testament to the hard and dangerous work of all the astronauts who have maintained Hubble over the years that we can still look forward to possibly another decade of mind-blowing science to come out of the the Hubble. And watching the current mission in HD brings it so much closer what amazing work the astronauts have been performing.
