The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), which was launched on Christmas Day 2021 from the Guiana Space Center, has astonished the world with its technological prowess and ground-breaking scientific discoveries. UCLan now invites the public to explore the amazing science it has accomplished, almost a year after its launch.
On Wednesday, from 6.30 to 8 p.m., the Jeremiah Horrocks Institute for Mathematics, Physics, and Astronomy at the University will host Dr. Pamela Klaassen from the UK Astronomy Centre in Edinburgh to present its most recent public lecture.
Dr. Klaassen will discuss the JWST mission so far, pausing to discuss the space telescope’s development, launch, and commissioning before moving on to some of the science it has already accomplished.
Attendance is free, but registration is required online.
