Hubble's early demise sends nanotech back to waiting list

Abstract:
At the end of 2003, NASA scientists were “going big guns” on a project that would have launched what they called the first applied nanotechnology in space: a cooling system for the Hubble Space Telescope that used a layer of carbon nanotubes. But the cancellation also followed President Bush’s announcement to send astronauts to the moon and Mars, and NASA’s response that it would realign its priorities and programs to support the initiative.
