#Now in 1993, astronauts Jeff Hoffman and Story Musgrave begin the final spacewalk of the mission. They'll replace solar array drive electronics, assist the solar array deployment, install an electrical connection box & place covers over Hubble’s magnetometers. #HubbleServicing25 https://t.co/4OmaTeIsoQ

#Now in 1993, astronauts Kathy Thornton and Tom Akers install the Corrective Optics Space Telescope Axial Replacement (COSTAR), which would act like a pair of glasses to refocus Hubble’s blurred vision for three of the telescope’s original science instruments. #HubbleServicing25 https://t.co/dcKL8iPE2j

#Now in 1993, astronauts Kathy Thornton and Tom Akers begin the 4th spacewalk of the servicing mission. Their objective is to install COSTAR, a device that would focus Hubble’s burred vision for three of the science instruments aboard the orbiting observatory. #HubbleServicing25 https://t.co/X1YA7qdFUD

#Now in 1993, astronauts Story Musgrave & Jeff Hoffman begin the third spacewalk of the servicing mission. Their main task is to replace Hubble’s primary camera with a more advanced version that included corrective mirrors to clear up Hubble’s blurry vision. #HubbleServicing25 https://t.co/UDRNPbZ1Nu

#Now in 1993, astronaut Kathy Thornton releases one of Hubble’s original solar panels into space. The solar panel, which was damaged and couldn’t be returned safely to Earth, separated from the shuttle and eventually deorbited & burned up in the atmosphere. #HubbleServicing25 https://t.co/3hlrqSn9Nt
