Mike Engesser to Speak on James Webb Space Telescope

Join the SUNY Oneonta Physics & Astronomy Department and the Science Discovery Center for a celebration of the James Webb Space Telescope's first images!

As an official "Webb First Look Event" site, SUNY Oneonta will be hosting a fun evening of space exploration for students, staff and the general public on Friday, Sept. 30th from 6-8:30 pm. Visitors can explore interactive activities at the Science Discovery Center, view life-size print-outs of the latest JWST images, and watch the original press release of the first images.

Starting at 7 pm in Perna Science room 121, the main event will be a talk by SUNY Oneonta alumni Mike Engesser from the Space Telescope Science Institute who worked on the MIRI instrument on the James Webb space telescope.
