Hubble: 17 Amazing Years

Pretty crazy to think that both my youngest daughter and the Hubble Space Telescope turn 17 this year. Today is the 17th anniversary of Hubble's launch and deployment, and it's really incredible how much this amazing instrument has taught us about our universe. Even after 100,000 orbits and 500,000 images, Hubble is still going strong (despite a few aches and pains that the next astronaut servicing mission will fix). My daughter has a few more months before her 17th (and of course she's amazing too).
