Forcing Hubble Fix
The committee is awaiting various reports from NASA including an assessment of risks of a servicing mission.
(As the Probe has reported, lawmakers on the record supporting a Hubble repair mission include Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) who told NASA in a letter March 2, "The funding that I included in the Omnibus Appropriations Act is to ensure that the workforce at Goddard, the Space Telescope Science Institute and their associated contractors remain fully engaged in all aspects of a servicing mission. Any attempt to cancel, terminate or suspend servicing activity would be a violation of the law unless it has the approval of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees.")
Mike Griffin, what's your say on Hubble's fate?
