The High Speed Photometer (HSP) was one of the four original axial instruments on the Hubble. The HSP, which was removed from Hubble during the First Servicing Mission in December , was used to make very rapid (up to measurements pr. second) light measurements of astronomical objects at a variety of wavelengths from the near ultraviolet to the visible. An occultation of the star GSC (V = ) by Saturn's rings was observed with the High-Speed Photometer on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) on October Richards, Evan E.

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) is the science operations center for the Hubble Space Telescope and for the James Webb Space records reflect much of the administrative and scientific activities of the STScI, from the early planning stages of the Hubble Space Telescope in the s to the Next Generation (James Webb) Space Telescope in the early 21st century.   Many records were set, such as the longest spacewalk and the most astronauts out in space at one time. In late NASA will attempt a similar space repair mission, launching the Space Shuttle to the nautical mile orbit of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST); it will then, rendezvous, capture, berth, repair, and then redeploy the HST. For more than 15 years, the Hubble Space Telescope has been providing scientists and the public with spectacular images of deep space. One of the most technologically advanced pieces of equipment that humans have put into orbit, Hubble has helped researchers make important discoveries about our universe, ranging from planets and stars to galaxies and cosmology.
