CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., March 11 (UPI) -- After two decades in space, $10 billion of Uncle Sam's cash, and enough data to reshape our understanding of the universe, shutting down the Hubble Space Telescope in 2010 would seem a satisfying end to a successful mission. To astronomers, however, it will only be the beginning as the Next Generation Space Telescope is being planned to take up where the Hubble mission ends.
