With NASA Ambassador John Fontana
Join us and NASA Ambassador John Fontana to relive the thrilling launch and successful deployment of the James Webb Space Telescope. Intended to replace the Hubble Telescope, the JWST will be able to photograph some of the oldest and farthest stars in the universe. After more than 20 years of development and preparation, the JWST launched on Christmas Day 2021. Scientists and people around the world spent several nervous weeks as the unprecedentedly complex telescope maneuvered into position and powered on. We’ll talk about the telescope’s dramatic development and launch history as well as showcase the photos taken during the earliest days of its mission.
