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 operates the astronomical observatory.

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