To be added on waitlist, email

Doors open at 6:30pm

Dr. Bullock is the Chair of the James Webb Space Telescope Users’ Committee, where he has a major role in selecting who uses the telescope and the projects that the telescope photographs. Dr. Bullock gets to review nearly all the astonishing new information that the telescope produces. He will bring some of the best space photos and the latest research findings for this talk at the Library.  Few people are more qualified to tell us about results from the Webb Telescope as Dr. Bullock’s research focus is on the origin of galaxies and the ‘dark matter’ that comprises most of the material in the universe.
