Cool stuff about Hubble

This article,"Think You Know Hubble? Top 10 Things You Don't Know," by Ki Mae Huessner, has something for everyone in its collection of Hubble facts, I didn't realize Mercury was never far enough from the Sun to be imaged by Hubble, or that the telescope's namesake was originally a lawyer, not an astronomer. As the Atlantis astronauts continue their spectacularly difficult and successful work on the HST, this is a fun review of why the telescope is so remarkable.
