    Hubble Space Telescope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Space Telescope European Coordinating Facility - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I will leave you to read everything if you want to know more, but here is something nice to read, easy for you to understand. This is not made-up stuff, this is reality. ESA and NASA worked together on several projects.

    20th anniversary
    The Hubble Telescope celebrated its 20th anniversary in space on April 22, 2010. To commemorate the occasion, NASA, ESA, and Space Telescope Institute (STScI) released an image from the Carina Nebula.[117]
    I personally know a couple of the top physicists that worked on the Hubble, as they are in my family.

    I probably know far more than you could ever hope to research on Wikipedia. Good luck.

    Start with Electo Optics...

    Detectors...

    Optical Imagery...

    Etc.

    Oh, well, that just goes to show that it doesn't matter who your parents or relatives are, you can still be ignorant and completely clueless of basic things despite being around intelligent and common sense people.

    I don't need luck here. I just need to call you out on your BS and your frail, and somewhat dim, intelligence and knowledge. Which is really not hard, just time consuming.

    You got shown up, and now you have to swallow it.

    See, all I did was call you out on this, but in fact, I agree. F the Fing EU, I do not like the EU one bit. And because of that, it is also true that the EU did nothing, at all. The ESA is not an EU agency. It is in fact, an agency that pre-dates the EU and it just an agreement between European nations. So you are ignorant on multiple counts because I already provided you the links to the ESA to read it. Where it says that it is not an EU agency. So the EU did nothing, but the ESA had an important contribution which you cannot deny.

    The only reason I wrote that comprehensive and well educated reply was to show you off. Like, when you go to the zoo and see a baboon. The baboon can't read. Can't comprehend a lot of things and it is a generally very funny looking animal.

    You too cannot read, cannot comprehend and your way of interpreting things is also, very funny.

    Now. Go back and eat a banana or whatever it is you do. Because I am sure thinking is one of the least prominent activities that you perform in your daily life.

    EDIT: Not that you are a monkey or anything. It is just interesting to draw parallels between stuff.

    That's like saying the EU made the LHC, which is incorrect.

    I'll take NASA's word over yours, thanks.

    NASA suggested that the lifetime of the space telescope be fifteen years, which implied that the instruments needed the ability to be replaced on the ground or even serviced in orbit—an ability not afforded to any satellite before or since. Scientists also had to balance the size and quantity of scientific instruments versus their cost. Too many instruments meant financial support was less likely; conversely, instruments of minimal capability would result in the loss of scientific support for the telescope. The European Space Agency (ESA) joined the project in 1975 and provided fifteen percent of the funding of the LST via contribution of the Faint Object Camera (FOC) and the solar arrays. In return, NASA guaranteed at least fifteen percent of telescope time—the amount of time astronomers use the telescope for space observations - to European astronomers. In 1977, Congress approved funding to build one of the most sophisticated satellites ever constructed.
