ESA/Hubble Science Newsletter
19 July 2013
A stranger in the crowd


Dear Colleague,
Welcome to the inaugural issue of the ESA/Hubble Science Newsletter for European users. If you receive this it is because you have, at some point, expressed interest in the Hubble Space Telescope — you might have submitted a proposal, obtained data, or browsed the Hubble archive. This brief newsletter is intended to report hot and recent Hubble news that might be of relevance to European users. It is also intended to create a direct communication channel between you, the European Hubble user community, and us, the staff scientists at ESA who support Hubble science operations. Please send any feedback you might have to
