STS109-346-018 (3 March 2002) --- The Hubble Space Telescope (HST), with its normal routine temporarily interrupted, gets closer and closer to its capture by the Space Shuttle Columbia prior to a week of servicing and upgrading by
the STS-109 astronaut crew. The shuttle's Remote Manipulator System (RMS) robotic arm was used to snare the
telescope and latch it down into the cargo bay.
