Hubble hobbled

According to an article from Wired, NASA has made a final decision to stop flights to the Hubble Space Telescope, despite complaints from amateur and professional astronomers alike.

The big claim is that they can't rescue the crew of the shuttle if it goes up there to service the Hubble and something goes wrong. Quite frankly, I'm wondering if they couldn't find a dozen or so astronauts in the program willing to take that chance.
