NASA's been looking at robotic missions but now they're saying it's going to be too difficult, expensive, risky, etc....

Several experts in the field have recommended using a manned mission to service the Hubble but O'Keefe is very staunch on the "not risking human lives" rhetoric. Even though, if there was a serious problem with the shuttle on the way to the ISS, the chances of them actually being able to repair it in orbit is almost nil.
