CYA 7-11

The James Webb Space Telescope
Saturday 30th July 2022
Start time : 10:00

Speaker : CAA

The James Webb Space Telescope, which was launched on Christmas Day last year, has since been focussing its 18 giant mirror segments, and is now ready for the astronomers to start using it. Many thousands of astronomers have applied for telescope time. What will be the first objects to be seen by the monster telescope? NASA are keeping it very secret! They plan to release what should be amazing images of selected objects this month, so we will be showing these up-to-date images.
