Resolving the Local Universe with the JWST & Hubble - Livestream

In his talk, Dr. Weisz highlights the amazing science and images produced by Hubble observations of local galaxies from the past three decades. The pinnacle of these studies is the Panchromatic Hubble Andromeda Treasury (PHAT) program, an 800-hour Hubble survey of our sibling galaxy Andromeda, and one of the largest Hubble programs ever conducted. Dr. Weisz will describe the PHAT survey and its scientific impact and discuss plans for the James Webb Space Telescope, which will succeed Hubble as the most sensitive telescope in existence following its launch in 2021.

Speaker: Dr. Dan Weisz, UC Berkeley
