Successor of Hubble


This is an article about our Hubble telescope and how it is getting old. It discusses plans for its successor and the new technology that it will have on it and subsequently the new things that it will be able to do. Very interesting.

it's strange to think that something so ingrained in the population like the Hubble space telescope will eventually be gone, but this new telescope sounds really cool. It is also very relevant to the last part of class with it's ability to see farther and detect organic matter like carbon.

I hope they are able to salvage some of the Hubble telescope. The Hubble telescope is something I have known about almost my entire life. It's a shame it has become obsolete, but at the same time a step forward technologically.

I think this is exactly what we need with the new detection of extrasolar planets. Even though we most likely won't be able to actually see them, we can still search for solar systems, or stars, where habitable planets may exist.

I hope the new telescope will help us learn even more about our Solar System

I'm looking forward to new missions and the information they can provide us with.

This is very interesting. Hopefully the new telescope will be able to provide us with deeper insights into our solar system and provide details that we weren't able to find in the past.
