Abstract

A brief account is given of the historical development of Goddard Space Flight Center in relation to optical studies. This is followed by short accounts of current activity in the uv and soft x-ray spectral regions, in lasers and holography, in vision, photography, and testing. Finally there is an optimistic word about the future of optics at GSFC and in NASA as a whole.
