Hubble 2020: Building on 25 years of Discovery
29 July 2014
The symposium “Hubble 2020: Building on 25 years of Discovery” will mark the 25th anniversary of the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. This symposium will be held at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore on 20–23 April 2015.
With an eye towards the future, this symposium will celebrate the extraordinary impact that the Hubble Space Telescope has had on science, culture, and public engagement with three main goals in mind:
- To focus on Hubble's scientific legacy through to 2020, highlighting synergies with ongoing space missions.
- To delineate and inspire the scientific overlap between Hubble and the James Webb Space Telescope.
- To pave the way for the WFIRST/AFTA telescope and for the next generation of large optical/UV telescopes in space. Please save the date! Additional information will be posted on the symposium website.
