JWST: The Just Wonderful Space Telescope
This show fills the Star Theater dome with James Webb Space Telescope’s first images to explore why seeing in infrared is a scientific superpower.
JWST, the James Webb Space Telescope, is in its intended orbit, and its mirrors are focusing infrared light even better than expected. We’ll appreciate JWST’s amazing technology, fill the Star Theater dome with its first images, and find out why seeing in infrared is a scientific superpower.
Each presentation includes a concise tour of stars, constellations and planets you can look for in the real sky.
