Venice in winter

After an initial agreement between NASA and ESA in 1977 and following Hubble's more than twenty years in space and 110,000 orbits of the Earth, the aim of this conference is to celebrate the huge contributions made by the Hubble observatory to our knowledge and understanding of the Universe. It is an opportunity to present its current performance following the successful servicing mission in May 2009 (SM4) and is a platform for showing early scientific results arising from the first year of operation of the new and repaired instruments. The meeting will provide a forum to consider the future usage of Hubble and to discuss the contributions that the observatory will make in the context of new space and groundbased facilities.
