Valentine has been advised that a component we manufacture, used in the packaging of a high reliability thermostatic device, will be on the mission to repair the Hubble Telescope in early 2009. This thermostatic device will be part of the Hubble’s battery heater circuit.
The STS-125 mission will return the space shuttle Atlantis to the Hubble Space Telescope for one last visit before the shuttle fleet retires in 2010.
