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.
There are several ways to include your message in the Hubble archive.
By participating in "Messages to Hubble," you give HubbleSite and NASA the right to use your message on our Web site and share it with the public. E-mail addresses will not be shared or stored.
Use the "Share" at the top-right corner of this page to send this link to your friends or post it to your favorite Web site.
