You aren't kidding; Thanks for leading me there...they are incredible images! THe colors are amazing (I suppose they're 'real' and not enhanced---in any case, I was especially struck by the picture of the many stars in the globular cluster, third in the sequence...)

A recent NOVA episode titled "Hubble's Amazing Rescue" showed the repairs in great detail. Lots of nice physics in the repair process - momentum (linear and angular) conservation, moment of inertia etc. You can read about it and watch it online at the following link:
