Bidding Hubble Farewell (2009)

About This Image

Hubble, released by the Space Shuttle Atlantis after Servicing Mission 4 in May 2009, floats against the background of space. The shuttle and telescope had been linked for the better part of a week while astronauts conducted five spacewalks. The mission is expected to be the last astronaut visit to the telescope.
