2002

NASA astronauts James Newman '82 and Mike Massimino, adjunct professor in mechanical engineering and materials science, perform 2 spacewalks to service the Hubble Space Telescope. They install a new solar array and replace the Hubble's Faint Object Camera with the state-of-the-art Advanced Camera for Surveys, a device that increases Hubble's capability tenfold.
