Although being in orbit for more than 14 years the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is still providing the sharpest optical images of the sky.

After the successful servicing mission by the Space Shuttle May 2009, HST will provide ground breaking observations of the Universe also for the years to come.

DARK uses HST to study the host galaxies of gamma-ray bursts, gravitational lensing from clusters of galaxies and to pin down stars exploding as supernovae.
