"Consider it a Goodbye Kiss (to Hubble)"


Astronomer-astronaut John Grunsfeld, veteran of seven previous Hubble Space Telescope spacewalks and a self-described “Hubble hugger,” inadvertently bumped into one of the observatory’s two low-gain antennas toward the end of an otherwise smooth spacewalk today, knocking off a small end piece. Groaning with disbelief, Grunsfeld said, “oh, I feel terrible.”
