World Space Observatory - Ultraviolet

Welcome to the WSO Science Control Center

 

The World Space Observatory - Ultraviolet (WSO-UV) is an international space telescope that will be launched in 2023 to guarantee observational access in the ultraviolet (UV) range to astronomers after the end of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) mission.

This is the WSO Science Control Centre (SCC) web page hosted by the Joint Center for Ultraviolet Astronomy (JCUVA), located at the University Complutense of Madrid (UCM).

 

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Letters of Intent for the Core program requiring previous preparatory observations with other facilities has been published.
