Webb Space Telescope – Nov 30

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a pioneering tool of cosmic discovery. Beyond its beautiful initial images, JWST promises to show us an "invisible universe" of infrared light, particularly allowing astronomers to learn about cosmic evolution — the birth and eventual death of stars, galaxies, and the cosmos itself.

Our JWST explorer is Andrew Fraknoi, emeritus chair of the Astronomy Department at Foothill College and first recipient of Wonderfest's Carl Sagan Prize for Science Popularization.

This event is produced by the Commonwealth Club in collaboration with Wonderfest. We can enjoy it in either of two ways: in person or online. Access to the two different ticket types is described in the HOW space, below. Each type is deeply discounted for Wondernauts who use discount code Wonderfest2022.
