Hubble is very close to my heart, and going back to Hubble, because I was there once already in 1993, is really a great privilege for me. Claude Nicollier#Already 68

I feel very privileged to be part of this mission, and when my nomination was announced, I was really very, very happy to be selected for this mission. Claude Nicollier#Announced 61

As far as the radio waves part of the spectrum, we can do these adequately from the ground because the atmosphere is basically transparent to our radio waves. Claude Nicollier#Adequately 56

We developed already, before the first servicing mission, this has been further developed on the second servicing mission and we refined it this time, all the terminology. Claude Nicollier#Already 54

The Next Generation Space Telescope, which will be located much further away from the Earth than the Hubble Space Telescope presently is, will also explore the infrared part of the spectrum. Claude Nicollier#Earth 50

The future infrared space telescope will cover that area in a much more efficient manner. Claude Nicollier#Area 42

In general, the objects in the universe that are very high-energy objects, or the processes that are high-energy processes, will radiate more in the short wavelength range towards the gamma rays or the x-rays. Claude Nicollier#Gamma 40

We have the Fine Guidance Sensors, one of which we will exchange out of three. Another one we changed on the last servicing mission, and on the fourth servicing mission in 2003 or 2004, the third one will be exchanged. Claude Nicollier#Another 34
