Images of Space: the Webb Telescope and Beyond

by Mike Adler, Geologists of Jackson Hole

January 5th (Thursday), 6 p.m., Via Zoom (online); Live at Teton County Library. Open to Public.

The launching and deployment of the new James Webb Space Telescope has renewed a new wave of interest in “Space” that hasn’t been seen since the human exploration of the Moon over 50 years ago. In this talk we will review the launching of the Webb telescope and its deployment in an orbit around the Sun over 1 million miles away. We will also explore how the Webb telescope can look further back in time to the early universe and to study planets around other stars for life. In doing this we will look at the images that I have made from the Webb telescope’s first 6 months in operation and to talk about what the images reveal and what we have learned from them.
