(HST)
(observatory-satellite with 2.4 meter reflective telescope)

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a 2.4 meter Reflector Telescope in space, launched in 1990 and still in operation in 2012. Instruments initially included:

The optics were flawed and a system (COSTAR, Corrective Optics Space Telescope Axial Replacement) was installed to compensate for the flaw. It is no longer necessary because the newer instruments do their own correction.

Current instruments:
