STS109-337-004 (3 March 2002) --- The Hubble Space Telescope (HST), with its normal routine temporarily interrupted, gets closer and closer to its capture by the Space Shuttle Columbia prior to a week of servicing and upgrading by the STS-109 astronaut crew. The shuttle's Remote Manipulator System (RMS) robotic arm was used to snare the telescope and latch it down into the cargo bay.
