Excerpt from National Geographic:

“In its final “pretty picture,” the longest-running Hubble Space Telescope camera has snapped the remains of a giant red star (above), NASA announced on Monday. The Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, which NASA hailed as Supercamera in a statement released today, will be decommissioned during the final space shuttle Hubble-repair mission set to launch today.”
