Location: Leacock Building, Room 132
Public Astro Night

Join us on Nov. 30, at 7:00 pm for Public Astro Night featuring Dr. Nathalie Nguyen-Quoc Ouellette, the Outreach Scientist for the Webb Telescope in Canada and Deputy Director of the Institute for Research on Exoplanets and the Mont-Mégantic Observatory!

The talk will take place in the Leacock Building, room 132. The talk will be followed by a Q&A! This is a free event, open to everyone.

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the successor of the famous Hubble Space Telescope, has finally launched and is ready for science! The Webb Telescope, a 6.5m infrared telescope, is without a doubt one of the most complex machines ever built by humanity and the largest telescope ever sent to space. Thanks to Webb, we now have the capacity to see farther than ever in our Universe, peer through the cosmic dust sprinkled throughout galaxies and discover and study new alien worlds. This project is an international collaboration between NASA, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency. In addition to contributing the FGS/NIRISS instrument, Canada and its astronomers are already some of the first to use the telescope and have already begun producing groundbreaking science thanks to its revolutionary data. As the first few images and bits of data start to trickle in, you will learn about some of Webb's very first exciting discoveries and what this mission means for the future of space astronomy.
