    The most powerful space telescope ever built is slated to have its first images available to the public in July!

    Cosmosphere VP for Education JoAnna Strecker will kick things off with an in-person presentation on telescope history, science, and engineering. Then Cosmosphere Camps alumna and theoretical astrophysicist Dr. Laura Blecha will join us remotely to emphasize the importance of what we can learn from Webb. Coffee, juice and water will be provided. 

    Can't make it in person? This presentation will be recorded, with the recording made available to the public on our Facebook paxge, YouTube Channel, and website shortly afterward.
