Video: Cardiff astrophysicists and the James Webb Space Telescope

The James Webb Space Telescope launched successfully on 25th December 2021, and is on its way to the “L2” point, around 1.5 million km from Earth (you can track its progress here).

In the video below, four Cardiff astronomers discuss their plans with Webb: Prof Steve Eales, Dr Subi Sarkar, Dr Tim Davis and Dr Mikako Matsuura. The producers were Lewis Cooper and Quinn Stones, both 3rd year undergraduates here in the School of Physics and Astronomy
