    Maybe it was still running on win95 Smile
    But seriously, this is an old telescope in space and it is still running after all these year’s collecting data from space.
    And we have to buy a new computer every year or so to be updated with the newest technology.
    NASA has some good equipment I must say.

    Don't forget the Voyager probes are also still out there and are working with 70s hardware.

    The Human Adventure is just beginning, but indeed Voyager probes was one of the best science advance on space human race ever made, it's quite impressive to see it's still operational with 70s hardware.

    Fair point as well. 80s was golden age for many things.

    Close, but wrong. The 90's were the best! But don't worry, it's okay to disagree! Everybody has the right to be wrong. ;-)

    Considering the amount of time it figured out how to remain in assistance with 80s equipment, I'm intrigued with NASA technology.

    I'm still running around with original 60's equipment, thanks to KETO, but that's a whole different bucket of worms.

    On the other hand, I wouldn't mind some replacement eyeballs, myself. Gettin' kinda sick of wearing (ever worsening grades of) glasses, and can't use contacts (do they even make multi-phocal contact lenses?), so I'm glad The Hubble's getting along fine on just one set
