The James Webb Space Telescope (also known as Webb or JWST) is an international creation that I first mentioned in last week’s Space Oddities. The successor to the famous Hubble Space Telescope, it is a joint venture between NASA, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the European Space Agency (ESA).

NASA is giving the media and artists an opportunity to get up close and personal with the world’s most sophisticated telescope on Wednesday,  November 2nd. Unfortunately, due to security/travel regulations, the artist event is only open to U.S. citizens.

All of the details for both visits are here:

If you know of anyone who is planning to attend, I would love to hear about the experience.  You can contact me through my social media links here in About Me….
