Comments off 6240 Views0

Today, June 27, 1990, 28-years ago, Dr. Edward J. Weiler, the chief scientist with the Hubble Space Telescope program, told reporters that the newly launched $1.5 billion observatory’s supposedly flawless 94.5-inch primary mirror had been ground to the wrong shape and was unable to bring starlight to a crisp focus…preventing the instrument from achieving optimum images in space!
