The James Webb Telescope: the New Generation of Hubble Telescope

March 4, 2022


The Hubble Space Telescope has become an icon of Astronomy and it is now more than 30 years old. The new and much more powerful James Webb Space Telescope will soon extend our frontiers of observation.

Professor Martin Ward has been involved in this exciting project for many years and, in this recording of a live lecture held on March 4th 2022, he offers a flavour of what is to come. Professor Ward is Emeritus Temple Chevallier Professor of Astronomy at Durham University.
