It launched on Christmas Day in 2021 and has recently been commissioned in its final orbit in the Sun - Earth system. The large 6.5-meter diameter JWST primary mirror and its infrared instruments will allow it to see some of the very first luminous objects that formed in the Universe shortly after the Big Bang. Other major science themes of JWST encompass studying the assembly of galaxies, the birth of stars and planetary systems, and planetary systems and the origins of life.  Speaker: Thomas Green, NASA Ames Research.
