Science with the Hubble Space Telescope - III: Two Decades and Counting
Start date: 12 Oct 2010
Address: Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti, Venice, Italy
The aim of the conference is to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Hubble's launch and the great scientific breakthroughs that the observatory has made.
The first day will provide a retrospective of these results. Following this, there will be presentations of the post-SM4 performance and and introductions of the first three Multi-Cycle Treasury Programs (MCTP).
Late in day 2 there will be a panel discussion to focus on future legacy of Hubble where the core question will be: "What have we missed?".
The following two days will then allow the presentation of a selection of early scientific results from the new and repaired instruments. The final talks will address the future of Hubble and the relationship with other missions and facilities.
