Very well said -Walt, I agree with everything you have said -which I read via
this website, if hubble was to go-what would our children and grandchildren have in the way of all those wonderful images produced by hubble over the years, this has been an incentive for everyone to experience the wonders of the universe, a certain person- Story Musgrave, spent 17 years designing this wonder, so please NASA think again, thank you so very,very much for your comments-Walt, regards to you and Story-we met whilst at Kennedy Space Centre, both of you are the [Right Stuff}
All the best-hope to see you both soon.

Other astronauts, including John Glenn, have very similar opinions:
