Postcards from Atlantis' Historic Hubble Mission

 
 
The space shuttle Atlantis' recently completed mission to the Hubble marked man's last trip to the iconic space telescope. Over five spacewalks to refurbish and upgrade the Hubble with state-of-the-art science instruments, Atlantis' payload included the Wide Field Camera 3, fine guidance sensor and the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph. Thanks to the crew efforts, the operational life of the Hubble Space Telescope was extended by at least five years. Here is eWEEK's day-by-day look at the mission.
