UPDATE: We are so pleased with the overwhelming response to this event, which is now FULL!

We look forward to seeing everyone at future programs and events. Please join our email list to get the latest news and announcements (and note that museum members receive first opportunity to register for events).


Join Dr. Stefanie Milam, a Planetary Scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and the James Webb Space Telescope Deputy Project Scientist for Planetary Science, for a free public program about the future of the James Webb Space Telescope. Dr. Milam will share the latest science gathered within our solar system, including stunning imagery of planets and moons, and how Webb is paving the way in the search for water on moons within our solar system.

Dr. Milam will be introduced by Dr. Caroline Morley, Assistant Professor in the UT Austin Department of Astronomy, who will share how her work studying exoplanet atmosphere science is informed by data from the James Webb Space Telescope. 

This event will be followed by a light reception. Every attendee will also receive a free pair of solar viewing glasses from McDonald Observatory!

Attendance for this free public program is limited to 150 people, and a registration is required.
