|Hello, SavetheHubble.com is run by me, Fernando Ribeiro. I'm a teacher, and I live in Brasilia, Brazil's capital
(no, it's NOT Buenos Aires, please!).
I run SavetheHubble.com from The HubbleRoom in my apartment. To keep the site up is a lot of work, but it is well worth it! I get in touch with people from all over the planet and have the chance to be part of this great adventure.
I had been following the news about Hubble for awhile when I read in the NY Times of 01/17/04 that service mission 4 (SM4) had been cancelled and the telescope would be (literally) left to its own (failing) devices. That sounded so astonishingly absurd that I felt compelled to do something and decided put up a website to gather together whatever efforts could be harvested to help support HST. That's how Save the Hubble.com was born in 01/26/04. It's a place for people to voice their concern and ideas to preserve this wonderful tool for knowledge.
