A billionaire hopes to upgrade the Hubble telescope on a private SpaceX mission, but will it really happen?

NASA’s iconic Hubble space station still has years of life left in it, and there are ideas to keep it going much longer — but those proposals may face uphill battles.

The Hubble Space Telescope, launched in 1990, has been serviced five times by astronauts and is in good health. But the telescope has been slowly aging toward Earth through natural drag from the atmosphere, so billionaire businessman and private astronaut Jared Isaacman proposed sending a maintenance mission to the telescope for the first time since 2009.
