The 240th American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting will include updates as the astronomical community prepares for the beginning of JWST science operations.
JWST Town Hall
Tuesday, June 14, 2022
6:30-8:00 p.m. (PDT)
The James Webb Space Telescope is NASA's next flagship infrared observatory, developed in partnership with the European and Canadian Space Agencies. Following launch on December 22, 2021, and a 6-month commissioning phase, the long-awaited flagship observatory will offer the worldwide astronomical and planetary science communities powerful new infrared capabilities for years to come. This Town Hall will look back on commissioning and summarize the activities that have taken place to prepare the telescope for science. We will discuss the science timeline through Cycle 2 and describe the tools available for science analysis. It will feature speakers from the JWST project office and Space Telescope Science Institute, and will provide an opportunity for the community to ask questions and provide feedback.
