The Hubble Space Telescope is a project of international co-operationbetween the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)and the European Space Agency (ESA). The partnership agreement bet- ween ESA and NASA was signed on 7 October, 1977.ESA has provided two pairs of solar panels and one of Hubble's scientificinstruments (the Faint Object Camera), as well as a number of other com-ponents. In addition, 15 European scientists are working at the SpaceTelescope Science Institute in Baltimore (STScI), which is responsible forthe scientific operation of the Hubble Observatory and is managed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) forNASA. In return, European astronomers have guaranteed access to 15%of Hubble's observing time.The Space Telescope European Coordinating Facility (ST-ECF) hosted atthe European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Garching bei München,Germany, supports European Hubble users. ESA and ESO jointly ope-rate the ST-ECF.
