    i saw a thing on tv on science chanell show called jorney to the center of the earth there is some weak spot called the south atlanitc anomolie. this caused problems for hubble because it went out side the field in this weak spot. this caused malfunctions mecasue it was getting hit by protons. so they jsut decided tto shut off instruments ant this orbit point. an i was thinking just charge the telescope with a + charge then the protons would repel but just my theory. found that kind of interesting that was hapening because somthing like that.

    Hmmm, how do you put a positive charge on something in space?
    Have you ever tried getting charged styrofoam off your body?
