During its first year of observations, James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has contributed to numerous scientific breakthroughs. Insights in faraway solar systems, a glimpse of the first galaxies and breathtaking images of our universe. The telescope that just keeps giving.

With a planetarium show specially designed for this event, Planetarium’s astrophysicist, Cecilie Sand Nørholm, will take you to some of the greatest telescopes on Earth – and in space – passing by both Hawaii and Chile on the way, before launching to space and joining our main character of the night, James Webb Space Telescope.

Gabriel Brammer, Associate professor at Cosmic Dawn Center on the Niels Bohr Institute, will enlighten us on the history and development of JWST. Gabriel is somewhat of a veteran when it comes to space telescopes, having developed algorithms for data analysis for the Hubble Space Telescope, and now also being part of multiple science programs regarding the JWST.

Georgios Magdis, Associate Professor and co-founder of the Cosmic Dawn Center at DTU Space, are looking into the gas, dust and stars in the early universe. By combining data from the JWST with one of the largest collections of radio telescopes on Earth, Georgios aims to gain knowledge of  the composition of the early universe.

Steven Gillman, postdoctoral researcher at DTU Space, will give you the latest insights into how it all began. Steven is part of a team using one of the many instruments of JWST to explore the earliest galaxies in the universe. His work is contributing to creating a map of our cosmic evolution – a key goal of JWST.

Kate Gould, PhD Fellow at the Niels Bohr Institute, investigates why we see massive, dead galaxies in the distant universe. Her work focuses on creating a better understanding of how these massive galaxies formed, and maybe more importantly, how they died. We are excited to hear what Kate’s investigations of JWST data can tell us on this problem.

We are looking forward to seeing you at this intriguing event on the newest discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope.
