Later this year, NASA is scheduled to launch the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), a successor to the Hubble.  Learn how the JWST differs from Hubble, where it will be deployed, and what its mission will be. The presentation will also cover its cryo-vacuum testing and what is being done to make this telescope ready to function in the coldness of space.

If the sky is clear, we will have a virtual star party with the Ritchie (or other) telescope on the island.
