The US authorities are planning a fifth expedition to the telescope

The Space telescope «Hubble» watch bears in Earth orbit for many years, making great shots, and aiding astronomers with the research, but like any other device, this automatic Observatory periodically requires maintenance which has already been held four times. Last flight to the telescope took place in 2009, but now the navigation sensors of the Observatory, and other equipment must be replaced and bring the telescope in order, Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. authorities.

The fifth flight to the space telescope supporters repair «Hubble» offer to use a spacecraft Dream Chaser, which is currently in development and not just intended for delivery of cargoes and crews of astronauts into orbit.

The Need to carry out repairs to the space Observatory is due to the fact that the new telescope «James Webb» designed as a replacement for «Hubble», is constructed long enough and in spite of all the promising technologies used in its creation, has a complex and quite fragile structure, and so when you start it can't be accidentally damaged.

The Launch of the telescope «James Webb» next in 2018.
