  1. Why don’t these things automatically go to museums? I don’t see what higher purpose it could have, as it’s very unlikely to be flown again. Does NASA want it to sit in some rich person’s parlor, collecting dust?

  2. Come to think of it, why don’t they have a decent set of recent photos of this seven million dollar item? That’s how you get maximum sale value from a ebay listing. 

  3. “Most excellent comrade, you will see the bid for transaction from my account of ebay, RedStarMotherland69xo”

    But seriously, I would think NASA space telescopes are subject to some sort of export control, which ebay isn’t responsible to enforce?
