JWST at the Maryland Science Center

The full-scale model of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), makes its next “World Tour” stop at the Maryland Science Center near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, Oct. 14-26.

 

Visitors, including that week’s Baltimore Marathoners and Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) attendees, will have free access each day – 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. – to see up close the tennis court-sized model of NASA’s next generation of major orbiting observatories. The Webb Telescope has already been displayed around the world, visiting sites in France, Ireland, Canada, Germany, and across the U.S.

 

Catch it if you can!

 

This special event features a JWST “Education Tent” with interactive games and activities, a mini-theater with a simulated environment of the cosmos, and a spectacular stargazing event on Friday evening, Oct. 14, for amateur astronomers and the general public.
