The Hubble Space Telescope's electronic system was back in operation Saturday, but despite daylong efforts its high-speed antennas remained down and its science instruments on hold. The shuttle Discovery's five astronauts, meanwhile, prepared to land at 6:49 a.m. PDT today at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., amid some concern that high winds might force a delay of the landing until Monday or Tuesday.

So here's young Frank Malina out of East Texas, slim and dark, mind quick as a prairie twister, studies engineering at Texas A&M and makes ends meet playing fiddle in his daddy's band for hick-town dung-stompers, and graduates in 1934, a Depression year. When Caltech offers him a scholarship, his family is busted so flat that he's got no way to Pasadena. So his college teachers pass the hat and durn near the whole town of Brenham, mostly Czech immigrants like the Malinas, scrapes together $300.
