Obvious candidates are the costly shuttle and space station, but Bush intends to keep the shuttle flying until 2010 and to complete space station construction, so NASA will have to look elsewhere. The first casualty was apparently the Hubble Space Telescope, whose startlingly beautiful images of the universe have amazed astronomers and delighted the public for a decade. Less than 48 hours after the president's speech, administrator Sean O'Keefe announced that NASA would stop sending servicing missions to Hubble. Without them, the scope will go blind in a few years, as a result of failing batteries and gyroscopes. Officials said they were abandoning Hubble because it's too risky to fly the space shuttle anywhere save the International Space Station, but many scientists saw the cancellation as a budget-cutting move--terminating Hubble will free up approximately $250 million each year.
