Hubble debate
a lot of sound and fury
Politics and posturing aside,
NASA's actually right this time

COMMENTARY
By James Oberg
NBC News space analyst
Special to MSNBC
Updated: 9:49 p.m. ET March 22, 2004HOUSTON - The premature termination of
the
Hubble telescope's mission is dismaying, even heart-breaking. But even more
appalling has been the aftermath of the decision. While NASA made ghastly
blunders in announcing and explaining the decision to cancel a needed repair
mission, the public furor that has ensued is based on fundamental
misunderstandings and misconception mixed with posturing and politics.
