May it rest in peace. Seems a waste to me though. Surely it could do other things or not it would seem.

That image of Betelgeuse was fantastic! Shame about Hershel. Maybe they could have put in something like a "flip sight", where at a given signal, a CCD array (or some other detector) is "flipped" over the bolometers, so that once all the Helium is spent, the scope can still operate, albeit at a lower, less efficient resolution.
