An internal NASA memo has revealed that the (last) Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission has been scheduled for September 11, 2008.

I have no real comment about this, except to say that I'm glad the date has been set. At the AAS meeting from which I just returned, a lot of the cool news was from Hubble, and I spent some time talking to old friends and colleagues with whom I worked on HST. It was nice to catch up, and it's somehow satisfying to hear an actual date set for launch. Per ardua ad aspera.
