KPR Presents: James Webb Space Telescope

Week of August 21, 2022: You've probably seen some of the breathtaking images that the James Webb Space Telescope is sending back to Earth. How is this telescope different from previous ones? Dr. Allison Kirkpatrick is an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Kansas, and a specialist in observational astronomy. She and her team are among a select group working on the mountains of data the James Webb telescope is transmitting. She took a break to give KPR's Laura Lorson a quick overview. 

To find more information and view photos from the James Webb Space Telescope, visit the NASA website and the Webb Space Telescope Gallery.  For more details on Dr. Kirkpatrick's research, visit the Cosmic Evolution Early Release Science Survey website. 

A shorter version of Dr. Kirkpatrick's conversation with Laura Lorson can be found at  kansaspublicradio.org/kpr-news.
