Hubble's European success
European excellence - from Hubble to the James Webb Space Telescope.
In May 2007, more than 17 years after the launch of Hubble, European Hubble scientists met in the Netherlands to discuss and share their achievements. This gathering took place just a few weeks before the signing of the official agreement between ESA and NASA on the James Webb Space Telescope, considered by many as the successor of Hubble.
Today, we have the pleasure of talking to ESA's Dr Duccio Macchetto, Associate Director of the Space Telescope Science Institute.
