Paper Abstract

A method for correcting flaws in the primary mirror of the HST that is under intense study by NASA is discussed. The proposal is to install corrective optics in front of the existing science instruments using the Corrective Optics Space Telescope Axial Replacement (COSTAR). COSTAR is expected to recover the rated capability of the HST.
