JWST at SXSW

JWST at SXSW

On March 8,9 and 10, NASA, the Space Telescope Science Institute, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, and Microsoft Research organized the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) experience exhibit as part of the South By SouthWest Interactive Festival. The full scale model of the JWST was positioned between the Long and Palmer center right outside downtown Austin, TX. Over 3 days more than 15,000 people attended our events and witnessed astronomers and engineers give talks about the science and challenges of building Hubble's successor in front of a 6 meter wide screen provided by Microsoft Research. The event was a tremendous success.
