Hamptons Observatory Presents Lecture On NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope: A New Era In Astronomy

Hamptons Observatory has joined almost 500 sites across the country to celebrate the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope, NASA’s next great space science observatory.

On Tuesday, November 16, at 7 PM, Hamptons Observatory will present a free, virtual lecture entitled “NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope: A New Era in Astronomy.”

The speaker, William Francis Taylor, a life-long East End resident, has been a NASA Solar System Ambassador since 2014. He is also Hamptons Observatory’s Senior Educator.

“We are thrilled that Hamptons Observatory is an official host site for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope launch community events,” said Executive Director, Donna L. McCormick. “We have partnered with the South Fork Natural History Museum to help our community celebrate this amazing feat of science and engineering. People of all ages and
backgrounds will find inspiration in the Webb mission, which will fundamentally change our understanding of the universe for this generation and many to come.”

Webb is the largest and most complex space science telescope ever built – the premier observatory of the next decade. This international mission, led by NASA in partnership with the European and Canadian space agencies, is scheduled to launch on December 18 at 7:20 AM.

Registration is required for this free, virtual event, and can be found here.
