NASA and SpaceX are conducting a six-month feasibility study to assess whether a Dragon mission could safely boost the orbit of, and perhaps also otherwise service, the Hubble Space Telescope.

SpaceX and NASA plan to launch Dragon to service the Hubble Space Telescope

Astronauts could visit the Hubble Space Telescope again one day, this time on a private spacecraft.

Hubble launched into Earth orbit in April 1990 and received five groups of visitors over the next two decades. These crews of astronauts, who arrived on NASA’s Space Shuttle missions, repeatedly repaired, maintained and improved the iconic scope, allowing it to continue to observe the skies with groundbreaking clarity to this day.
