Later this month, the world’s largest, most powerful telescope is being squeezed inside a rocket and launched into space!
It’s called the James Webb Space Telescope, but what is it and what will it discover?
Join YouTuber and science broadcaster Greg Foot ( to find out during this special Live Mission Briefing for families!
UK scientists and engineers have played a key role in making Webb and will be among the first to make amazing discoveries with it. Travelling a million miles from Earth, Webb will show us our Universe in a whole new light, providing new views of space – and new space discoveries – for the next generation.
To celebrate this historic mission, the UK Space Agency and Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) have joined forces for this Live Mission Briefing.
Kids aged 4-14 – and their grown-ups! – can find out why and how Webb was made, discover at-home activities, ask questions of space experts and get ready for launch!
Join Greg and special guests for this free, live-streamed event, December 18th at 11am!
We’ll be live over on Youtube:
And also streamed live right here on the UK Space Agency Facebook channel! More details to come.
