STS-125 will be the fifth and final servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. The mission will be flown by Space Shuttle Atlantis.Atlantis will carry two new instruments to the HST, in addition to a replacement Fine Guidance Sensor, six new gyroscopes and batteries to allow the telescope to continue to function at least through 2013.
