Science on Tap Explores Webb Space Telescope

Webb Telescope (NASA: Chris Gunn)

Northern Michigan University's first Science on Tap presentation since the beginning of the pandemic will focus on the history, science and imagery of the James Webb Space Telescope. Ben Hendrickson, adjunct assistant professor of physics, will present “Webb: Worth the Wait” from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6th, at Ore Dock Brewing Co.

Hendrickson will discuss how the telescope program came to be, its namesake, how it differs from the Hubble Telescope, the technology required for it to operate, how it collects data and the questions NASA hopes to answer.

The event is free and is open to all ages.
