Caption

Servicing the Hubble Space Telescope. Astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman holding the original Wide Field and Planetary Camera (WF/PC) of the Hubble Space Telescope during Shuttle Mission STS-61. One of the tasks on this servicing flight was to replace the WF/PC with a new version. The new camera has improved detectors as well as a corrective optics system to allow for the fault in the HST's main mirror. Five spacewalk shifts were performed to conduct all of the servicing tasks required. Mission STS-61 flew on 2-13 December 1993.
