Washington Post: NASA Weighs Robotic Mission To Aid Hubble

May 10, 2004, Guy Gugliotta, Page A01
"Early this year NASA had all but written off the Hubble Space Telescope, but today a robotic mission to replace worn-out batteries and gyros, and even to install new instruments, suddenly seems so doable that the agency is likely to ask for proposals to do the job in early June. "
It's a very complicated mission, but do-able. All of the public outrage about letting Hubble go sooner than scheduled probably had something to do with this.
