Astronomy on Tap: In the age of JWST

September 17, 2022 @ 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM CEST

Good things come to those who wait. This is certainly true for JWST. First proposed in 1996, the telescope is now observing the wonders of space. And it already showed us things we never seen before. In this edition of Astronomy on Tap Copenhagen we will have two speakers showing us highlights of astronomy in the age of JWST.
Our speakers are:
Prof. Lars Buchave: Planets the size of Earth seem to be quite common in our Galaxy. But are they truly Earth-like? Lars Buchave will tell us how we can use atmosphere observations of Exoplanets with JWST to answer that question.
Kate Gould: Already in the first 8 months since JWST’s launch, it has changed what we know about the universe, and the first galaxies. Kate will explore some of the science of galaxies that JWST has discovered so far, and talk about the exciting prospects still to come in the next decade (and more!) for extragalactic astronomy.
18:30: Doors open to the STARDUST Room
19:00: Prof. Lars Buchave – Exoplanets and the Search for Life
19:30: Quiz and break
20:00: Kate Gould – Galaxies
Quiz! Join the half time quiz for a chance to win some drinks vouchers and test your knowledge about space.
Astronomy on Tap is a (FREE) series of events aimed at making the latest research in astronomy and space accessible to the public, with fun talks given in simple ENGLISH, and quiz, and plenty of time for mingling between our speakers and guests.
