Past Events

Audience with Aerospace: James Webb Space Telescope

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is NASA’s largest space science telescope ever developed. This project is a tremendous example of how STEM professionals can work together to build something extraordinary. The telescope will orbit almost one million miles away from Earth and explore science questions like the first galaxies and distant solar systems. 
We were delighted to host a special event ahead of the JWST launch on December 22. At this Audience with Aerospace, K-12 students will hear from Kenneth Harris, senior project engineer about the space telescope and his experience working on the project. The event will also cover what it takes to launch and get a spacecraft into orbit with Jonathan Binkley, systems director at STARS Mission Operation Center.

Date and Time: December 20, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. PST
Length: 1 hour
Audience: K - 12 students
