STScI Newsletter


The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) helps humanity explore the universe with advanced space telescopes and ever-growing data archives. The news team has publicized the scientific findings of the Hubble Space Telescope since its launch in 1990, and are also responsible for previewing the capabilities of the James Webb Space Telescope and the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST). In addition, they work to share the findings of researchers who use the Barbara A. Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST), and staff who support future large space telescope missions.
