MacGregor is an Assistant Professor in the Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences Department at the University of Colorado.The JWST is the most powerful telescope ever launched and it will enable a broad range of investigations across the fields of astronomy and cosmology, as well as detailed atmospheric characterization of potentially habitable exoplanets.  The JWST is deployed in a solar orbit near the Sun–Earth L2,(Lagrange point) about 1.5 million kilometers (930,000 mi) from Earth, where its five layer kite-shaped sunshield protects it from warming by the Sun, Earth and Moon.

A livestream option will be offered as well.
