sci.astro.hubble (a moderated newsgroup concerned with the Hubble Space Telescope)
This newsgroup is intended to complement the substantial efforts of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, where support of the many users of the facility originates. The group will serve as a platform for problems, requests, suggestions and needs of the scientific community as they use the Telescope to further their research. Accordingly input from the Institute to the discussions will be vital, and several members of that facility have indicated their interest and willingness to participate fully.
There is an Archive for the newsgroup. This archive is intended for materials pertinent to the discussions in the newsgroup sci.astro.hubble, part of the USENET news structure. Valid items for placement here are large datasets, public domain software (in compressed tarfile form), imagery (GIF preferred) and Postscript renderings of relevant papers on the topic of data processing in connection with Space Telescope. - README .
The archive contains a form which executes WAIS searches on the archive.
