In the 1970s, NASA and ESA took up the idea of a space-based telescope. Funding began to flow in 1977. Later, it was decided to name the telescope after Edwin Hubble. Although the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was downsized later to a 2.4 m primary mirror diameter from the initial 3 m, the project started to attract significant attention from astronomers.
