New Views of our Solar System from the James Webb Space Telescope

Join Dr Leigh Fletcher, a planetary scientist from the University of Leicester, as he reveals the incredible potential of the James Webb Space Telescope for exploring the diverse environments across our Solar System. Webb will explore worlds both near and far, using its unprecedented infrared capabilities to open the door to new discoveries - from the distant, cold Ice Giants and Kuiper Belt, to the potentially-habitable satellites of the Gas Giants, to the swirling storms of Jupiter and Saturn. Dr Fletcher will discuss the challenges of observing big, bright, rotating planets with a space telescope, explore connections to ongoing spacecraft missions, and reveal the exciting prospects for a new era of planet exploration.
