Working in space

We saw a great presentation about the recent mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. The speaker was Christian Ready, who has been a regular and popular guest at Windycon for many years. This latest mission has a lot of tasks that are easy to relate to, e.g.
  • Removing screws without dropping and losing them.
  • Stuck bolts
  • Replacing circuit boards.
  • Changing batteries
The point was that even simple tasks are much harder in space.
