The James Webb Space Telescope is going to be the Marvel Superhero that discovers how the first galaxies were built over 13 billion years ago. With its infrared eyes, Webb will be able to see through interstellar dust and clouds and allow us to witness the birth of stars and planets. Is there life on planets beyond our own solar system? Webb may find the answer by analyzing the atmospheres of exoplanets. Join us on this incredible journey through the universe. This program is geared towards school-aged children and their families.
Presented by Dennis Roscoe, Ph.D. NASA Solar System Ambassador, Waukesha
