Without doubt Hubble will be seen as one of the greatest scientific instruments ever made.

I didn't realize it was that old. Nevertheless, the discoveries it has uncovered are astounding.

Agreed.  I remember vividly when that first image came back and was "fuzzy".  Huge disappointment and much anger directed at NASA.   NASA sucked it up, though, designed a fix and the shuttle astronauts performed an incredible feat by spending days in space installing and upgrading the telescope, and the resultant images were as breathtakingly beautiful as that first one was ugly.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STS-61   Not sure how much longer it will last but it is healthy at the moment and shows no signs of ending operations anytime soon.
