James Webb Space Telescope

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will launch in 2023. With this telescope, scientists will observe the formation of the first galaxies and explore the dust clouds where stars and planetary systems are forming today. The infrared observatory utilizes the latest infrared camera, spectrometer, and sensor technologies to investigate the beginning of time. Arcata photographers have played an instrumental role in documenting the development of the system and will be present for the launch.
