NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center is home to the Hubble Space Telescope Operations Project, the agency’s team of managers, engineers, and scientists who oversee all aspects of the Hubble mission. The mission operations team is an integrated group of civil servants and contractors who are responsible for Hubble’s day-to-day activities – those functions of the mission that assure the health, safety, and performance of the spacecraft. Examples of the work performed by the operations team include commanding the spacecraft, monitoring and adjusting the spacecraft’s systems (power, thermal, data management, pointing control, etc.), developing flight software, upgrading the control center’s hardware and software, and maintaining the network and ground systems. Many of these activities are performed in the Space Telescope Operations Control Center (STOCC), the nerve center for Hubble’s mission operations.
