ISAS Space Science Colloquium & Space Science Seminar
Studying the Early Universe with NASA's JWST
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is NASA's next orbiting observatory and the scientific successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. JWST is an international collaboration between NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center is managing the overall development effort. Northrop Grumman is NASA's main industrial partner, and the Space Telescope Science Institute will operate JWST after launch.
During my remarks, I will discuss the current state of the telescope development and address the science that JWST is planning on targeting in the areas of galaxy formation and evolution.
