Paper Abstract

The on-orbit repair sequence of the Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) in April 1984 is described, and lessons derived from this experience are noted. Implications for serviceability in the design of future spacecraft and instruments are illustrated by the case of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and its second generation spectrograph.
