The Art & Science of Webb Imagery
Online Attendance Only
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM EST
Speakers: Alyssa Pagan and Joseph DePasquale (Space Telescope Science Institute)
The amazing visions from the Webb Space Telescope have captivated the world. But a lot of work goes into creating the images we see. There is a long and involved process by which scientist’s black-and-white observational data are transformed into dynamic color imagery for the public.
Join image specialists Alyssa Pagan and Joe DePasquale from the Space Telescope Science Institute as they discuss, detail, and demonstrate the art and science of translating infrared light. They will highlight the importance of creating these Webb images in the first place: serving to educate, engage, and inspire.
Recorded live on Tuesday, January 17, 2023.
