Could any of the “planned” commercial rockets make it that far?

It is not only the development and execution cost of the ‘rescue’ mission. Running an observatory like this is extremely expensive. With JWS, their will be a superior telescope in space, in one of the Lagrange points. Better way of spending money. But as someone mentioned, Hubble should end in a museum. Just connect a small booster and lift it to 1500 km. Ik can survive for centuries in an orbit like that.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
