The James Webb Space Telescope, or JWST, launched on Christmas day, and has just completed the most complex space deployment in history. This huge infrared telescope will be used to look at objects in our own solar system.

Join NASA scientist Naomi Rowe-Gurney as she discusses her research into the ice giants, Uranus and Neptune, and the many other research areas that JWST can help with.

In this talk, Naomi explores just what the Webb is, and the big science questions it could help to answer. From planetary atmospheres to Kuiper belt objects and comets, Webb is equipped to observe them all.
