Interesting article from a couple of years ago regards the intelligence community donating 2 94" mirrors to NASA.

Great to see these "mini" hubbles re purposed to help with the hunt for dark matter/energy, but my gosh what could of they been watching with them pointing at earth and what have they been replaced with. Bearing in mind that adaptive optics came from the Intel community once they had been declassified.
