Servicing the Hubble Space Telescope. Astronauts Jeffrey Hoffman (foreground) and Story Musgrave seen servicing the Hubble Space Telescope during Shuttle Mission STS-61. The large rectangular hole in the telescope (top left) is the location of the Wide Field and Planetary Camera (WF/PC). The original WF/PC is seen stowed temporarily at lower right. The replacement camera is still in stowage out of frame. The replacement of the WF/PC was just one of the many tasks assigned to the crew during the mission. Five spacewalk shifts were needed to complete all of the tasks. Mission STS-61 flew on 2-13 December 1993.
