It'll be at Lagrange point 2 (basically, hiding behind Earth's shadow in order to keep its sensitive sensors as cool as possible) 1,500,000 km away from the Earth (about 4 times the distance to the moon), so it'll be too far away to service should something go wrong. In comparison, the Hubble is a mere 540 km away.
