Description

The Hubble space telescope was at the time meant to be the finest telescope ever made with the smoothest most perfect mirror on earth.
So how did the $1.5 Billion project end up with a flawed mirror that had a grinding error 10x greater than the required tolerance and so bad that it could not be focused once in space.
