Farewell, Shuttle

Pat gets a no-prize the likes of which will not be seen again for giving us this kinda-sorta retrospective on what this Hubble service mission means for the Shuttle. One down, nine to go, and that'll be it for the type. I think it will be a little sad when it launches for the last time, but in my opinion and from other things that I've read in places like Aviation Week, the thing is a monument to what happens when reach exceeds grasp, and political exigencies and inertia triumph over common sense and consistent goals.
