Since its launch from Guiana Space Centre on Christmas Day 2021, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has been amazing the world with its technological brilliance and revolutionary science. In this talk, I’ll talk about the path that got us to where we are today, making stops at construction, launch, and commissioning before arriving at some of the amazing science already achieved with this amazing space telescope.

The lecture is given by Dr. Pamela Klaassen, a Project Scientist at the UK Astronomy Centre in Edinburgh. She has been part of the MIRI team for the last
eight years, and studies the formation of the
most massive stars in our Galaxy.
