STS109-E-5874 (9 March 2002) --- This close-up image of part of the giant Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was captured with a digital still camera aimed through an aft flight deck window. Columbia's robotic arm (seen grasping the telescope, upper right), controlled from inside the shuttle's crew cabin, lifted Hubble from the cargo bay prior to its release on March 9, 2002.
