Upcoming Talks/Events

 

  • Hubble’s Recent Hits and a Look Forward to the James Webb Space Telescope

    Dr. Jason Kalirai, Multi-Mission Project Scientist, Space Telescope Science Institute
    Tuesday January 23rd 2018 - 7:30 pm
    101 Jordan Hall of Science

    In this presentation, I’ll show a blitz of recent Hubble discoveries that have reshaped our understanding of what our place in the cosmos is. As Hubble continues to amaze us with its breathtaking imagery, it has also turned up new mysteries. To answer these, NASA is building the much more powerful James Webb Space Telescope, set to launch next year. With its 21 foot gold mirror, Webb will be our deepest space exploration vehicle and will trace our cosmic origins all the way back to the first stars and galaxies that seeded everything we have today. This incredible facility represents a new generation’s Hubble, and is about to usher in a new era of precision space astronomy.
