Discover Galaxies with the James Webb Telescope

Livingston Library Community, 

Designed for infrared astronomy, the James Webb Telescope is the most powerful telescope to ever be launched into space. According to the Smithsonian, “The James Webb Space Telescope launched into orbit seven months ago and is now peering deep into space. Last week, two independent teams of scientists announced that the telescope might have spotted a galaxy from 13.5 billion years ago.” 

If you would like to learn more about this fascinating telescope, we invite you to join the Livingston Public Library virtually through Zoom on Wednesday, August 31st at 7pm, where Modhumita Sabata, Principal Systems Engineer at the Space Science Institute, will take us on a journey exploring “The Amazing Science of the James Webb Telescope.” Participants will also have the opportunity to ask Sabata questions! 

Registration is required for this event and can be done so through the Library’s event calendar. An email with information on how to access the Zoom event will be sent to registered participants the day before the event is to take place.

We hope to see you at this event!

Best,

Amy Babcock, Director
