Unfolding the Universe: The James Webb Space Telescope

Edward E. and Jane B. Ford Gallery
Open through October 1, 2023
Presented by the Simpkins Family Foundation

We are peering deeper into the universe than ever before with NASA’s newest space-based observatory, the James Webb Space Telescope. As the successor and complement, to the famed Hubble Space Telescope, Webb sees in infrared light and has already provided tremendous insights into the mysteries of the universe. On display is a collection of some of the most mesmerizing imagery captured by Webb so far as we highlight stars, planets in-and-out of our Solar System, star-forming nebulae, massive galaxies, and some of the most distant objects ever observed. There are an assortment of 3D printed displays throughout the gallery, exploring the innovative technology of Webb and providing a unique perspective of various celestial objects featured in the imagery.
