Cary Library: The James Webb Space Telescope: First Results from the First Light Machine

Tuesday, December 13, 2022

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is the largest astrophysics mission in NASA's history, launched on December 25, 2021. JWST was designed to see the first galaxies forming shortly after the Big Bang, and has been nicknamed the "First Light Machine." 

Dr. Kathryn Flanagan, astronomer emerita at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI),  will introduce us to this marvelous facility and its first science discoveries. This talk will give us a first glimpse of how the JWST is performing and whether it will meet its lofty goals.
