I am concerned though! I am concerned that you won't act in time. Let me explain. You seem to be about to begin a wonderful, eye-opening journey during which everything will seem to fall into place. I know this might be hard for you to believe, especially because you're going through some tough times right now. But a very powerful and prophetic Window of Opportunity is about to open for you. If used properly -- and not abused - the upcoming period of time will result in your own, personal "MIDAS TOUCH." As a result, you will find yourself in situations in which everything you handle can provide you with a great deal of WEALTH and PERSONAL SATISFACTION. But you need to act NOW, because this Window of Opportunity is open for only a short period of time. If you miss it, you may never experience another one in your lifetime. You are moving quickly through this period, so it wouldn't surprise me if you are experiencing some confusion and turmoil in your life

The damage is probably due to three causes: orbital debris and/or micrometeorites impacting with Hubble, or thermal cycling. The first two items are self explanatory. In the third case, since the Hubble Telescope orbits the Earth ~90 times a day, the spacecraft undergoes thermal cycles (heating and cooling) as it goes from the sunlit part of the orbit to the dark side of the orbit. This constant thermal cycling can cause damage on the thermal blankets over time, not unlike older cars left out in the sun having their dashboards eventually crack. All of those heating and cooling cycles can eventually cause the thermal blankets to crack. As the image shows, multiple layers of thermal blankets were used on Hubble to provide adequate protection to the spacecraft if the outer layer became damaged.

What an awesome (and easy) way to check out and explore the Hubble. Watching a video does not come close to the personal touch of photosynth, giving us complete control to navigate different areas. Very cool !! Thanks guys !

I had to come back to this one. What causes the wear & tear as shown in one of the highlights? Is that from damage during previous repair spacewalks?
