Do you think we should save Hubble?

Yes! Make one last servicing mission to keep Hubble working as long as possible. The James Webb Next-Generation Space Telescope will likely not be ready for service until well into the second decade of the 21st century. In order to keep the time from when the Webb Space Telescope takes over for Hubble as short a span as possible, keep Hubble flying with this last mission. What new wonders would the instruments installed during the final servicing mission show us? As much more as the Advanced Camera for Surveys improved upon the WFPC I and WFPC II cameras? Undoubtedly!

I vote to save Hubble with this one last servicing mission.
