Hubble Space Telescope User’s Committee

Carol Christian, carolc[at], and Tom Brown, tbrown[at]

The HST User’s Committee (STUC) met on October 20–21, 2016. Their role is to review the current status of the Hubble observatory, including the health of the telescope and instrumentation, as well as the scientific productivity of the facility. The group also makes recommendations regarding policy and observing strategies. In order to accomplish this, the STUC receives briefings from the Hubble Mission personnel (at the Institute) and the Project (at Goddard Space Flight Center). They also welcome input from the user community at large. At the STUC web page one can find the STUC reports and a mechanism for contacting the STUC.
