I'm more concerned about who exactly has their hand up his arse.

Multiple instances of time travel shenanigans have left me no less than thirty-seven times older than the universe itself. My various body parts, now rusted and barely functional, have been replaced at least fifty times each (except, ironically, all the diodes down my left side).
Hubble cost 4 billion USD for a 2.4 metre mirror telescope, Gran Telescopio Canarias cost 130 million EUR for a 10.4 metre telescope. Considering a shuttle launch at the time cost 450 million USD, we can surmise that satellites are seriously pricey. For what they're looking to do, ground based is still the best option.
My brother once had to tell our mum that the hoover went bang and tried to bite him. He'd tried cutting through the lead with the breadknife, fortunately he was wearing his wellies at the time. 30+ years later, they still have the knife with a perfect semi-circular hole in the blade.
