Game Changer: The James Webb Space Telescope

For almost a quarter century, some of the brightest minds at NASA and Northrop Grumman have been quietly perfecting an engineering marvel that promises to change our understanding of the universe. Its mission will usher in the exploration of uncharted territories in the first epoch of galaxy formation — a part of the universe never seen before. This cosmic time machine will be the largest and most complex space telescope ever to launch into space and an engineering feat like no other. Able to peer 13.5 billion years into the past in its search for alien worlds, and 100 times more powerful that its beloved scientific successor the Hubble Space Telescope, the Webb Space Telescope is gearing up for its home stretch to launch. Join Northrop Grumman engineers for a conversation to discover some of the game changing technology and engineering behind the Webb Space Telescope.

Date: Thursday, April 22, 2021
Time: 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. PT / 1:00–2:00 p.m. ET
Guest Speakers:

  • Scott P. Willoughby, Vice President and Program Manager, Webb Space Telescope, Northrop Grumman
  • Krystal Puga, Spacecraft Systems Engineer, Webb Space Telescope, Northrop Grumman
