NASA MEDIA TELECON ON JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE, Mar 27, 2018, virtual, 11:30 am ET (audiocast)

NASA will hold a media teleconference on March 27, 2018 at 11:30 am ET with an update on the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).  NASA’s Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate established an independent review team in January 2018 to assess whether JWST could meet its launch schedule, revised just in September 2017.  This briefing presumably will present the results of that review.  Participants are:

  • Robert Lightfoot, Acting NASA Administrator
  • Thomas Zurbuchen, Associate Administrator, Science Mission Directorate
  • Dennis Andrucyk, Deputy Associate Administrator, Science Mission Directorate

The briefing will be audiocast on NASA Live.
