Who were the crew members on the Hubble Space Mission?

I assume you're referring to the crew that did the recent repair work on the HST. This mission, designated Space Shuttle Mission STS-61, flown on the shuttle Endeavour, had the following crew:

Richard O. Covey (mission commander)
F. Story Musgrave (payload commander)
Kenneth D. Bowersox (pilot)
Kathryn C. Thornton
Jeffrey A. Hoffman
Thomas D. Akers
Claude Nicollier (Swiss astronomer from the European Space Agency)

All crew members had flown in space before this mission. There is a photo of the crew, and a brief story about the mission, in the April issue of Sky & Telescope.
