Our Team

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) implements the science program for the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and will be the Science and Operations Center for the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).

STScI celebrated its first 25 years in April 2006. Over more than two decades, STScI has been a part of an awe-inspiring history full of both challenges and triumphs; stewards of a groundbreaking observatory whose reputation will still be celebrated long after the telescope itself is gone.

Our tenure encompasses both the launch of HST and the start of NASA's next large observatory, JWST, putting us on the cutting-edge of astronomy into the foreseeable future.
