The Hubble Telescope was not initially able to take clear images due to a flaw in its main mirror, but a space shuttle mission in 1993 was able to install corrective optics, greatly improving its capabilities.

The Hubble  Telescope is not  only used  for scientific  research but  has also  been  .

used to make  important contributions  to public education and outreach, inspiring many people to learn about astronomy and the universe.
