|HST Call for Proposals for Cycle 25|
We invite scientists to participate in Cycle 25 of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The telescope and its instruments were built under the auspices of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA). Management of HST’s scientific program is carried out by the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). We anticipate allocating up to 3,550 orbits in this cycle, plus an additional 1,200 orbits to be pre-allocated for Cycle 26, totaling up to 3,000 orbits for Small Programs, 650 orbits for Medium Programs, and 1,100 orbits for Large and Treasury Programs. An additional 1,000 Snapshot observations and 500 Pure-Parallel observations may be allocated. Abstracts of previously accepted programs can be found on the HST proposal catalogs webpage.
