The JWST is the most ambitious space telescope mission in the world. Years in the making, it is slated for launch this autumn. To find out more about this mission and the science and technology it encompasses, join the National Space Academy team as they host Dr Alistair Glasse, instrument scientist and commissioning lead for the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI - the UK’s main contribution to the Webb telescope) for an online talk and Q & A session.
Alistair has spent his career working with international teams to develop and manage telescope missions to further our understanding of astronomy and astrophysics, and so has a great understanding of the different careers in astronomy and space science as well as the science and technology behind the Webb telescope.

You can submit your questions to Alistair in advance or during the event using the Q&A function. Questions will be pre-selected or chosen by the host on the day: depending on the number of questions coming in we may not be able to ask all of your questions, but we will pick up on any common themes in questions and try to get through as many as we can! Please submit your questions to email@example.com.
This webinar and the Q&A session will be recorded which may capture your name, picture, voice or video and may be made available on our social media, YouTube channel and our website. If you would like to ask a question during the event, your name will appear in the chat or Q & A chatbox, as you have entered it on this registration form. You do not have to enter both your first name and surname. You consent to this by registering for this webinar.
Your data will be anonymised. We will store the school data and region data for our analysis but not your name and email address. Your name and email address will be deleted two working days after the event takes place, after receiving a follow up email.
