2005 Calibration Workshop

2005 Calibration Workshop

In 2005, the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) celebrated its 15th anniversary of on-orbit operations. Throughout this period, each new generation of instruments has opened up a quantum leap in discovery potential. Most recent is the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), installed in 2002, which has played a prominent role in HST science. In addition, the NICMOS Cooling System (NCS) returned the telescope to the forefront of near-infrared astronomy. The next generation of instruments, the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) and the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS), are likewise expected to yield rich discoveries.
