Opening ceremony for the new Hubble Science Archive at ESAC
The European Hubble Archive has moved to the European Space Astronomy Centre in Villanueva de la Cañada, Spain. It joins the data archives from other ESA space science missions such as Herschel, XMM-Newton and Mars Express. The move comes as European astronomers have been awarded their largest ever share of Hubble observing time.
