Today is one of the last launches of NASA’s shuttle program, but this past week has also marked another milestone for space exploration. On April 24, 1990, the Hubble Telescope launched.

Since then, Hubble has given us some of the most iconic pictures of space that we have. It’s contributed to everything from understanding dark matter to planetary discovery. Now that the famous lens is celebrating 21 years of work, what’s in store for it in the future?

Sheilah talks with Matt Mountain, director of the Space Telescope Science Institute, the Baltimore-based organization in charge of Hubble and its research.
