In celebration of the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope launch, The Discovery will explore the wonders of the universe with a variety of special hands-on activities from 12:00 to 4:00pm. And while you’re here, be sure to explore the Sun, Earth Universe exhibition in The Discovery’s Under the Stars gallery.
The James Webb Space Telescope is set to launch on December 18, 2021, and will be looking farther into the cosmos than ever before. Scientists at NASA will use the telescope to look at ultraviolet and visible light emitted from the very first stars that formed in the early universe. It will also be a powerful tool for studying our solar system, as well as planets that orbit other stars.
