Mike Massamino's second spaceflight was the final Space Shuttle servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. On that mission, Mike was tasked with the most complicated spacewalk ever attempted: the in-space repair of a delicate scientific instrument inside of the telescope. A major miscue during that spacewalk nearly led to failure. But by leveraging their training, performance support tools, and critical problem-solving skills, the ground control team and the astronauts in space worked together to come up with an innovative solution that saved the day and the mission. Mike explains how although not every problem has an obvious solution, preparation, and innovation can help us overcome unforeseen challenges.
