NASA reports that they are almost ready to unveil the first full-color images from the James Webb Space Telescope. These images will demonstrate Webb at its full power, ready to begin its mission to unfold the infrared universe.
The images will be released one-by-one during a televised broadcast beginning at 10:30 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, July 12, from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Live coverage of the image release broadcast will air on NASA TV, the NASA app, and the agency’s website. The public also can watch live on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, and Daily Motion.
Additionally, Webb experts will answer questions about the first images and data in a NASA Science Live show on Wednesday, July 13, at 3 p.m. EDT. The broadcast, Webb’s First Full-Color Images Explained, will air live on the NASA Science Live website, as well as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. NASA will also broadcast a live social media event in Spanish on its NASA en español YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter accounts.
Webb, an international collaboration led by NASA with its partners the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency, is the biggest telescope ever launched into space. It will unlock mysteries in our solar system, look beyond to distant worlds around other stars, and probe the mysterious structures and origins of our universe and our place in it.
