"NASA has targeted Sept. 10, 2008 for the launch of the fifth and final space shuttle servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope." 7, 2007 Science Daily (more)

Dear Hubble fan, this web site has been up and running for almost 4 years now. It went online just 8 days after Nasa made it public there wouldn't be another service mission and therefore Hubble would be, very much literally, left to its own devices...
We've spent a lot of time, effort and resources. Thousands upon thousands of people visited this site. I've answered questions, given interviews, written letters. More than five thousand people, from all over the world, have signed the petition which has been sent to Nasa and to the American Congress. We have not given up on Hubble. We have not given up on the science it makes. We have not given up on the wonders it unveils. We have prevailed!
Hubble will be saved and it's going to begin on Sept. 10, 2008. We've been here before, we'll be here then.
Long life to Hubble!

Hubble Image Trivia

The CCDs of the Wide Field Channel (WFC)

The WFC features two 2048 × 4096 pixel CCDs based on a commercial design manufactured by Scientific Imaging Technologies (SITe). The configuration of the ST008A chip, specifically designed for ACS, has the serial register along the 4096 pixel edge, to reduce the number of pixels which can be involved into a radiation damage event. This chip is designed to be buttable along only one edge making the 2×1 mosaic possible.
