Speaker: Dr. Michael Ressler – Project Scientist, James Webb Space Telescope
Topic: James Webb Space Telescope
The James Webb Space Telescope will continue to revolutionize our study of the cosmos. Slated for launch in late 2021, Webb will look deeper than either the Hubble or Spitzer Space Telescopes at infrared wavelengths. This talk will describe Webb as a whole, with a focus on the Mid-Infrared Instrument —— a partnership between JPL and a consortium of European astronomical institutes.
