A more detailed discussion of the comparative risk between a robotic servicing mission and a shuttle mission to HST is presented in Chapter 7.
FINDING: Many of the concerns raised by the committee regarding the risk of attempting to robotically service the Hubble Space Telescope could be mitigated for future programs through planning for robotic servicing in the initial spacecraft design.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
