Re: Hubble COSTAR removal

Part of this mission calls for removing the instrument that corrected
Hubbel's optical problem. How will the new (and/or upgraded)
instruments work once the COSTAR is removed? Are these new instruments
not going to use the designed and corrected optical path?

"Since the first servicing mission, all of Hubble's replacement instruments have
had technology built in to them to correct Hubble's marred vision, making COSTAR
no longer necessary."
