To celebrate Hubble's 20th anniversary, HubbleSite collected messages from the public about the human side of the telescope's saga. Thousands of people took the time to share the ways Hubble had touched their lives. This project is now closed, but you can see a sampling of the messages received under "Message Snapshots." All messages that were sent are now stored in the Hubble archive alongside the full collection of the telescope's science data. Generations from now, researchers looking for Hubble's impact on society may use these messages to better understand how one telescope changed the face of astronomy.
