National Science Week event.

Presented by the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing (CAS) at Swinburne.

Successfully launched on 25 December 2021, NASA’s successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has taken its first images and will be released to the public 12 July.

Join Professor Karl Glazebrook, Dr Themiya Nanayakkara and Dr Colin Jacobs, as they discuss these images and the potential secrets of the universe they reveal. Dr Nicha Leethochawalit from University of Melbourne will share her work on redshifted galaxies (z>10).

No registration required.

This event is part of a regular series of public astronomy talks at Swinburne. The next talk is Friday 30 September in ATC101 with Dr Rebecca Allen on "Australia's growing role in the global space industry".
