General Accounting Office.]. Large aperture telescopes benefit all astrophysics as well as planetary and Earth science. They provide unprecedented spatial resolution, spectral coverage, and signal to noise, advancing all of these science areas.

Envisioning the need for future. NASA creates the Large Space Telescope Science Steering Group to begin studying the feasibility of a three-meter diameter telescope.

After being invited to join the project, European Space Agency agrees to become involved with the large program. The diameter of the telescope is reduced to meters. Since launch inthe Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has provided amazing images that have led to discoveries. Explore Hubble's history and facts.

In this testimony, we note that NASA's 3 major telescope projects are all making progress in development, but also face some challenges.

For example, the James Webb Space Telescope has made progress in developing and testing its hardware and instruments, and addressing technical problems.

However, the project has already been delayed by up to 60. The Hubble Space Telescope, approaching its 30th anniversary, has a legacy enabled by the ability to repair and upgrade the observatory over the years.

Jeff Foust reviews a book by a NASA astronaut who played a key role ensuring the telescope could be repaired by later shuttle missions. Monday, Febru   As part of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NAIC) program, a team of scientists from across the US was recently given a Phase I award for their self-assembling space telescope concept.

The Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) is a NASA infrared space observatory currently under development.

WFIRST was recommended in by United States National Research Council Decadal Survey committee as the top priority for the next decade of astronomy.

On 17 FebruaryWFIRST was approved for development and launch. WFIRST is based Mission type: Infrared Space observatory. With the space shuttle program ending this year, NASA had agreed to pay Russia $50 million a seat.
