Servicing the Hubble Space Telescope. Astronaut Story Musgrave seen holding on to the body of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) during the STS-61 servicing mission. The main body of the telescope is at left, its image distorted by the fish-eye lens used to make the photo. At upper right is half of one of the giant solar panels of the telescope. Behind Musgrave is the Shuttle's payload bay, with the nose pointing away from the camera. Mission STS-61 flew on 2-13 December 1993, with five separate spacewalks needed to complete all the servicing tasks.
