Team Hubble is an international collaboration of scientists, engineers, technicians, instrument builders and designers, and computer experts. These dedicated people come from universities and other academic organizations, national space agencies, government, and private industry.

Hubble's engineering operations — the testing and maintenance of the spacecraft's overall performance — are conducted by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.

Hubble's flight and science operations, which include steering, conducting observations, and translating raw data into the telescope's images, are led by staff at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, MD. STScI's work is managed for NASA by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc. (AURA), an international group of 31 educational and nonprofit organizations.

STScI's 400-member Hubble team represents a collaboration between AURA and the European Space Agency (ESA), as well as several industry collaborators such as Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), Lockheed Martin, and Honeywell.
