The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the successor to NASA’s famous Hubble Space Telescope, is scheduled to launch on December 18, 2021. The WSU Planetarium is pleased to collaborate with the Detroit Public Library on a series of virtual lectures to commemorate this occasion. This is the third lecture in the series.
 
This lecture will give an overview of modern scientific views of the universe, its origins, its habits, and the place of humanity within it.  The James Webb Space Telescope's advanced infrared detection abilities will give astronomers access to information that may better help us understand the origins of the universe.

Dr. David Cinabro is Professor of Physics & Astronomy at Wayne State University, and IPA at the US Department of Energy, High-Energy Division.

Wayne State University Planetarium is partnering with the Detroit Public Library on a series of presentations around the JWST launch, with support from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
