For a space telescope, Earth orbit isn’t a great viewing spot. As a craft passes in and out of Earth’s shadow, it changes temperature, which can mess with its instruments. Earth itself can shine into the telescope, spoiling the view. And activity on the Sun can cause Earth’s atmosphere to expand, increasing drag and shortening the ’scope’s lifetime…
