NASA has decided to fly the shuttle to hubble.
The crew they selected is an All-Star group - past experience with Hubble seemed to be important for being selected for the mission.
I'm proud to say that Scott Altman, who was the commander (top dog) for the last Hubble flight will be commander again for this flight - and he's a fellow Illini. He also flew an F-14 Tomcat for the classic movie "Top Gun" - look in the credits. Great guy!
