  •  the version I heard (10+ / 0-)

    about my-idiot-nephew-in-high-orbit was that NASA insisted on using a particular test opn the main mirror that all the optical experts objected to. It was the wrong test and the mirror had - and still has - astigmatism. They had to build a module full of corrective optics (since replaced).
    My sister worked on the corrective optics. That's why I refer to it as my idiot nephew. We were very pleased when we heard (unofficially) that the fix worked.

    (Is it time for the pitchforks and torches yet?)
