The December issue of the ESA/Hubble/JWST Science Newsletter is now available. Within the newsletter you can find articles about Søren Larsen’s experience as an ESA representative on the Space Telescope User’s Committee (STUC), a call for early release observations with the  NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope, an analysis of the hot astronomical topics with respect to the publishing of papers using Hubble data, and a brief report by ESA/JWST Project Scientist Pierre Ferruit about the European contribution to James Webb and the next major milestones.
