Because, I'm figuring, they keep looking and looking and they can't use it to prove that God's out there and that it's American:

The future of the Hubble Space Telescope is in doubt after the White House refused money for a rescue plan, US media has reported.

US space agency Nasa will announce the decision in February, ending plans to send a human or a robot repairman, the Washington Post reported.

The service cost was expected to top $1bn, but has been cut from the federal budget request, sources told the paper.

For 15 years Hubble has captured some of the most profound images of space.

For those of you not keeping track, $1 billion is about what a week's worth of the Iraq War costs. Lessee...1 week of violent oppression in the name of freedom is worth more than understanding how our galaxy is constructed...
