with Prof. Jonathan Crass
University of Notre Dame
The James Webb Space Telescope, launched in December 2021, is a powerful new tool astronomers will be able to use to study the universe. But how do astronomers decide which telescopes and tools to use or build? And what are the key science questions they are trying to answer? Join us as Dr. Jonathan Crass, assistant research professor in the Department of Physics, discusses some of the current and future tools for astronomy and how they will answer fundamental questions such as: Are we alone in the universe? How did we get here? And do we really understand how the universe works?
