Somewhere right around two years from now, giving a couple weeks for travel to legrange 2, then the unfolding process, maybe we will be seeing something we never imagined. Life signs? Looks like launch of the James Webb Space Telescope is around March 30th, 2021.

Some personal big news to share: yesterday I accepted an offer to take on a tenure-track position at starting in the fall! I'm excited to join and work with the (growing) exoplanet group at Space Telescope --- especially with just in the horizon :-)!

required hundreds of scientists, engineers, optics experts and many others to pool their knowledge in a way that had never been done.

Earth is too bright for to observe, but looking at other objects in our solar system (as well as other planets in other solar systems) will help us gain insights about our own home.

will revolutionize our understanding of how supermassive black holes (and the galaxies they are in) evolve together. We’ll probe the stellar gas and dust of galaxies both nearby and distant!

Engineer Mike Menzel at 's Space & Science festival: " will follow the Earth around the Sun at a point called the Second Lagrange Point - and by putting it there, one umbrella is going to block out the light from the Earth, the Sun, and the Moon."

Some trivia to ponder as you watch the today... The James Webb Space Telescope is so big, a total of 17 of 's mirrors could fit across a football field, endzone to endzone!

"Proposals already submitted in response to the Cycle 1 Call will not be carried over and will need to be resubmitted." Scariest news today was not delay but rather that there are some truly disturbed minds who submit observing proposals weeks in advance

Dear Northrop Grumman, what are you doing to the ? 😯 🔸damaged transducer that was incorrectly powered [on] during testing 🔸valves had to be replaced after inproper cleaning 🔸catalyst bed heater overstressed at the wrong voltage(!)

3/ will open a new window into the high redshift to study faint and distant galaxies during the early phases of cosmic evolution. Specifically, JWST will quantify the galaxy population and galaxy functions at higher redshifts than ever before.
