Senator who helped save Hubble donates space telescope collection

A politician who helped save the Hubble Space Telescope has now donated the souvenirs she saved from the space program to the institute that runs the astronomical observatory.

Retired Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland), who served longer than any woman in US congressional history and was one of Hubble’s biggest cheerleaders on Capitol Hill, donates her space memorabilia collection (opens in a new tab) to the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland. The archive contains framed astronomical pictures, photos, illustrations and models.
