Paper Abstract

The Wide Field and Planetary Camera instrument is being constructed at JPL as one of the instruments on Space Telescope. The instrument will be used to map the Universe and to study the outer planets. It will be able to see deeper into the heavens (by a factor of 1000) than has ever been seen before. The predicted performance will be reviewed along with a description of the instrument, and its current fabrication status.
