Guest Speaker:
Emeritus Teaching Professor in Physics, University of California – Santa Barbara


About the Talk:
James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the largest space telescope ever built, is now in permanent orbit around the Sun. In this talk, Professor Freedman will explain what the telescope is for, how it differs from other space telescopes like Hubble, and what astronomers are learning - and hope to learn - by using JWST.


About the Speaker:
Professor Roger Freedman is an emeritus teaching professor of physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara (USCB). He has co-authored several best-selling textbooks, including University Physics (Pearson), College Physics (Macmillan), Universe (W. H. Freeman), and Investigating Astronomy (W. H. Freeman). He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of California campuses in San Diego and Los Angeles and did his doctoral research in theoretical nuclear physics at Stanford University. He holds a commercial pilot’s license and is an academic advisor to UCSB Women’s and Men’s Rowing.
