For the past 30 plus years, the Hubble Telescope has looked deep within the Universe, and helping us explore the secrets of its formation. The Hubble Telescope, is primarily a visual telescope, with some capability to observe the ultraviolet, and infrared thus gave us some extraordinary views of the of universe. Complementing and as a successor to Hubble, will be the James Webb telescope, which will launch in October this year. The Webb telescope will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System. A link to the Zoom meeting will be emailed to registrants prior to the virtual program.
