Shuttle scuttle means Hubble trouble? A rebuttal!

The announcement that Hubble would have to die early, because only the Shuttle could save it, is looking more and more like it was a NASA variant of the "Washington Monument Maneuver." This is where a government agency feigns the "necessary" closure of a popular, prominent program -- like the Washington Monument -- to stir up political support. The latest news via AP is: NASA to Review Plan to Phase Out Hubble

I already posted my opinion of the early defeatism -- and its antidote via a private competition to save Hubble -- in Send Asimo to Save Hubble and Hubble Rescue Battlebots.
