“The painting depicts the historic servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope in December 1992. Kathryn Thornton releases a defective solar panel into the heavens as another astronaut performs duties in the space shuttle Endeavor’s cargo bay. The solar array and the wide-field planetary camera were some of the major units serviced during the STS-61 mission.”
