From the front page of cnn.com:
"The Hubble Space Telescope was put into orbit 20 years ago to capture images of deep space. An initial lens problem was fixed, and the orbiting observatory continues to provide stunning images of the universe."
Mirror problem, people, not lens problem. You've had twenty years to figure this out.
One more piece of evidence for the pathetic state of science reporting in this country.
On the plus side, go HST!
