Time Travel in Space: How the Webb Telescope lets us peer 13.5 billion years into the past
Join Dr Martin George on a journey to the oldest stars and galaxies, when our universe was young and the first sources of light were forming. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is the most powerful telescope ever, but how does it work and why is it capable of showing us beautifully sharp images from an unimaginably distant past?
After the talk, we’ll take in a presentation of some of Webb’s most stunning and impressive images, set to live music.
Immediately following this performance, the audience and speakers will be invited across the street to Beaker Street’s Festival Hub at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, featuring delicious food and drink, live music, science/art exhibitions, 150+ scientists to chat with, and more!
