Why not do the servicing mission with Polaris Dawn? They've given themselves extra training time.
It does strike me as a wild thing to do on the crews first EVA. I'm not sure it's wilder than the missions NASA's own astronauts have done on their first missions?
This would not be done on the first Polaris Dawn flight.
A Hubble servicing mission would be a separate NASA-run flight.
Question, does anyone know? How many astronauts that have done Hubble servicing are still in the active astronaut corps?
Megan McArthur and Drew Feustel are the two remaining STS-125 crew members still active.
Note that Megan McArthur has flown on a Crew Dragon (Crew 2). She operated the shuttle robotic arm on STS-125. Drew Feustel was one of the four spacewalkers on STS-125.
