From Hubble to Webb and Beyond
 Show Description
Instructor: Gary Smaby, BA
Course Date(s) & Time: 1/19/2023 - 1/19/2023, Th, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM Pacific Time
Fee: $10.00
Location: 307, Mary Stuart Rogers Gateway Building, 37500 Cook St Palm Desert, CA 92211

Explore the deepest reaches of space without leaving the Palm Desert campus. Join is as we go beyond the achievements of the Hubble telescope and look into the future of space technology. The Webb telescope often gets called the replacement for Hubble, but we prefer to call it a successor. After all, Webb is the scientific successor to Hubble; its science goals were motivated by results from Hubble. Hubble's science pushed us to look to longer wavelengths to "go beyond" what Hubble has already done.
