In May 2009, Space Shuttle astronauts replaced two of Hubble's science instruments and performed other repairs. This week scientists celebrated the results "The new instrument is ten times more sensitive, which means we can look at ten times as many targets or, alternatively, a target that's one-tenth as bright."
One of the most important advantages of a telescope in space is that it is above the distorting effects of the earth's atmosphere.
