Profs & Pints Annapolis: Aboard the Webb Space Telescope
April 25 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Profs and Pints Annapolis presents: “Aboard the Webb Space Telescope,” a NASA astrophysicist’s guide to the design, mission, and early discoveries of a pioneering space instrument, with Matthew Greenhouse, project scientist for the James Webb Space Telescope’s instrument payload. Many of us have been spellbound by the images produced by the James Webb Space Telescope since its launch into space in December 2021. The largest space telescope ever constructed, it’s capable of peering through both space and time to observe how galaxies, stars, and planetary systems evolved over cosmic time. It also will search exoplanets’ atmospheres for evidence of life. Profs and Pints is offering you a chance to learn in depth about the Webb mission from an insider: Matthew Greenhouse of the Goddard Space Flight Center’s Laboratory for Observational Cosmology. He has been involved in the Webb mission as a senior staff member since 1997, and he specializes in demystifying the Webb mission for public audiences.
