Hubble Space Telescope

I was just randomly surfing the web when I came across a page of images from the STS103 mission to fix the pointing of the Hubble Space Telescope in 1999. One of the photos nicely shows 'squashing' of the Moon due to refraction in the Earth's atmosphere.

I also found a video of Michael Foale replacing the onboard computer with a 486!
