AIP's Center for History of Physics works to preserve and make known the historical record of modern physics and allied sciences. Through documentation, archival collections and educational initiatives, the Center ensures that the heritage of modern physics is safeguarded and its story accurately told.
The home of the Hubble Heritage Project is Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore MD, which is run by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy for NASA. The Hubble Heritage Project has been granted a small amount of observing time. It is enough to satisfy the dual purpose of obtaining scientifically useful data and generating visually intriguing images of a few objects.
