What appears to be a number of astronauts, because of the shiny mirror-like surface of the temporarily-captured Hubble Space Telescope, is actually only two — astronauts John Grunsfeld (left) and Andew Feustel. The mission specialists are performing the first of five STS-125 spacewalks and the first of three for this duo. Photo credit: NASA
