HLA Data Release 5
The Hubble Legacy Archive (HLA) announces the availability of Data
Release 5 as of March 8, 2011. New in this release are a new,
interactive footprint interface (pictured); multi-wavelength source
lists; high-level WFC3 science products from the Early-Release Science
and the Multi-Cycle Treasury program CANDELS; and the ability to
obtain source information directly from the Interactive Display

which are now public.
Very Wide Field Surveys in the Light of Astro2010
A general theme to the top recommendations of the Astro2010 Decadal Survey
is the importance of wide-area surveys. These surveys will provide data that
are much deeper and covering larger solid angles than previous surveys, opening
new parameter space for discovery.
