STS-61 (Hubble repair) Mission Highlights

STS-61 was the first Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission, and the fifth flight of the Space Shuttle Endeavour. The mission launched on 2 December 1993. The mission restored the spaceborne observatory's vision, marred by spherical aberration. Of particular interest to the MIT community: AeroAstro Department Professor Jeff Hoffman, who appears extensively throughout this video, was aboard as a mission specialist and performed three of the repair spacewalks.
