JWST at the 234th American Astronomical Society Meeting
St. Louis, MO (Union Station)
The 234th American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting will include updates and events to help the astronomical community prepare for JWST science.
STScI Town Hall
Monday, June 10
Grand Ballroom A
The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) serves the astronomical community through the operation of multiple NASA flagship missions including Hubble, JWST, and WFIRST, the development of advanced data and science archives, and the dissemination of astronomical information to the broadest public audiences. The STScI Town Hall will consist of a mix of presentations from STScI’s user engagement leads from our missions and related cross-mission activities.
In recognition of the interest the community has in the progress toward launch of the observatory, the town hall will feature a presentation on JWST’s status, including updates on the Cycle 1 science timeline and an overview of how you can prepare for JWST Cycle 1. We will include time for discussion to receive community input regarding new initiatives and to answer questions about our activities in the coming year.
