Into the Unknown: the James Web Space Telescope Screening and Discussion

Launching in 2020, NASA's James Webb Space Telescope will reveal a universe we have never seen before and is poised to answer questions such as: How did the universe make its first stars and galaxies? The documentary INTO THE UNKNOWN tells the story of building the James Webb Space Telescope — a revolutionary successor to the Hubble Telescope and 100 times more powerful. Featuring dynamic scenes of construction, fascinating conversations with scientists and engineers and stunning visuals, Into the Unknown offers an in-depth look at one of the most daring scientific missions ever attempted. A story for all ages, this film captures the wonder of the cosmos and the timeless human desire to understand our place within the universe.
