James Webb Space Telescope Expert Panel

At the Museum | Farrand Auditorium

September 9, 2022 / 4:00 PM–5:00 PM

In July, the James Webb Space Telescope released its first astronomical images, revealing more than ever about distant galaxies, stellar nurseries, a planet outside our solar system, and the nebula of a dying star. This is just the beginning of the telescope’s planned operations; come find out more at the Museum! We'll be hosting a NASA-led expert panel via live webcast in Farrand Auditorium on Friday, September 9 at 4:00 PM. Attendees can submit questions to the pool in this nationwide Q&A about one of the greatest scientific achievements of our time! You can also learn more about the James Webb Space Telescope at any of our weekend planetarium shows. The expert panel and planetarium shows are included with Museum admission.
