NASA‘s newest space telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope (or JWST for short), has finally finished completition and it’s set to blow our collective minds with views of the very first galaxies that formed in our universe, as well as getting a closer look at all of the exoplanets that Kepler has found!
In this interview, we speak with Dr. Stefanie Milam, JWST‘s Deputy Project Scientist for Planetary Science, about those subjects and more as we dive into the future of NASA astrophysics and space telescopes. We also discuss what inspired her to become a NASA space scientist as well as her advice on how to become a NASA scientist just like her!
And once you’ve finished watching the interview with Dr. Milam above, click here for our interview with Dr. Paul Hertz, the director of NASA Astrophysics. In it, we talk about the James Webb, Kepler, Hubble, and Spitzer telescopes, as well as the next telescope that he and Dr. Milam are working on, the WFIRST!
