HST Hits 1 Million Observations!

Hey Space Placers!

Here's a stat for the record books: 1 million science observations for the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Acheived appropriately enough on July 4th, HST "logged its one millionth science observation during a search for water in an exoplanet's atmosphere 1,000 light-years away."

Transiting Exoplanet HAT-P-7b

Well done to the HST Team and here's to the next million observations!
