Media Invited to Rare View of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope Mirrors

Media are invited to join NASA Administrator Charles Bolden Wednesday, Nov. 2, for an update about what’s in store for NASA’s next great observatory, the James Webb Space Telescope, and a rare glimpse of the telescope’s mirrors. From 9 to 9:30 a.m., Bolden, along with other agency leaders and experts, will discuss the future of the world’s largest and most complex space telescope and its role in revealing the universe. This portion of the event, at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, will air live on NASA Television and stream on the agency’s website. After the discussion, media will have the opportunity to view the mirrors and interview Webb scientists and engineers until noon.

Media who would like to attend should contact Laura Betz at or 301-286-9030, and should arrive between 8:30 and 8:50 a.m. at the visitor's center at Goddard. The Webb Telescope will study every phase in the history of our universe, from the first luminous glows of the Big Bang, to the formation of planetary systems capable of supporting life, to the evolution of our own solar system.
