NASA Space Tools Designed for Hubble

Check out these cool custom tools that were special made for the final flight headed for the Hubble Telescope that will be made by the Space Shuttle Atlantis, whose mission is to make several repairs to the telescope. Since the repairs were never supposed to be made in space, more than 200 special tools were developed to aid the astronauts in a gravity-free atmosphere. They include a workstation that mounts to the chest of a space suit, drills that reduce hand fatigue, and mechanisms that prevent small components from floating away once detached. via.
