HST SM4 Media Reference Guide
If you want some deep background information on the Hubble Space Telescope and this week's SM4 service mission, you can download a 133 page Media Reference Guide for the mission here (PDF). This guide was produced for NASA by Lockheed Martin, and it includes: Introduction, HST Servicing Mission 4, HST Science and Discoveries, Science Instruments, HST Systems, and HST Operations. It has a lot of colorful and informative graphics, including a number of still shots from photorealistic NASA animations of service mission operations (two of them shown here, on page 2 of the guide).
