From Alexis Madrigal: "Hey, brother, can you spare a Hubble?"
Now, we get word from the Washington Post that the Department of Defense has gifted two better-than-Hubble telescopes to NASA. That's right. Our military had two, unflown, better-than-Hubble space telescopes just sitting around. This story is almost unbelievable; it feels like a hoax. But it's not.
More details are in the Washington Post article. The problem with the gift is that NASA has no budget to actually fly these telescopes and staff their operations.
I bet the private space ventures could figure out a way to use them...
