Introduction

JWST for Scientists

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will be NASA’s next flagship infrared observatory, developed in partnership with ESA and CSA. Accessible to the worldwide scientific community, it will offer scientists the opportunity to observe galaxy evolution, the formation of stars and planets, exoplanetary systems, and our own solar system, in ways never before possible. This website offers scientists information on proposing for time on JWST as well as the capabilities of the observatory's instruments and modes, data analysis tools and software, and news and events.
