On May 11, the Space Shuttle Atlantis (STS-125) launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The astronauts' mission is to do a final set of repairs on the Hubble Space Telescope. Now, the Shuttle has reached Hubble, and the astronauts have set to work. Here, the Hubble telescope, after being captured and locked down, rests in Atlantis' cargo bay.
