The AMS repair sure reminded me (and many others, I'm assuming) of the Hubble repair. Kudos to everyone who was involved in this enormous job.

There's a guy on Youtube (Astralpackrat) who makes time-lapse videos of the spacewalks and launches:

Expensive instruments, designed for attachment to the space station, should always be designed for maintenance. It is never a question of will it have problems - it is when. Problems are a given.
