First Images Watch Party
Be among the first to see the first images captured by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) by joining us for a watch party in the Universe Theater on July 12 at 10:30 AM. JWST launched from the European Space Agency (ESA) Launch Facility in Kourou, French Guiana in 2021, and soon, NASA will be conducting a live telecast releasing the first findings of this powerful telescope. Get out of the heat and watch the livestream from the Universe Theater. This watch party is included with admission.
After the livestream, check out the James Webb Telescope HoloTube located on the second level of Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex. There, discover how this incredible telescope operates and how its technology differs from the Hubble Space Telescope.
