Paper Abstract

Representatives of the HST user community urged that a sizeable portion (10-30%) of HST's observing program be dedicated to large observing projects, each of 100 orbits or more of telescope time. In the first 10 Cycles of HST observing, this goal was not fully realized. In HST's Cycle 11, large programs make up nearly 40% of the HST General Observer time allocation. We describe the advances in proposal processing that have made this possible, and give examples of the scientific and mission goals that these programs are designed to meet.
