James Webb Space Telescope engineer to give talk at CMC Steamboat
Learn about building the world’s most advanced telescope on Dec. 2
The CMC Sky Club at Colorado Mountain College Steamboat Springs is presenting Lana Klingemann discussing “Engineering the James Webb Space Telescope,” which will launch this December, at the Steamboat campus on Thursday, Dec. 2.
Klingemann is the senior project engineer at Ball Aerospace, which designed and built the telescope in a joint project with Northrop Grumman for NASA. Klingemann spoke to a sold-out crowd at the Bud Werner Library about the telescope earlier this fall, and the CMC Sky Club has invited her back for anyone who missed the first presentation.
Thursday evening’s talk will feature Klingemann as she describes the process of creating the world’s most advanced telescope and explains what challenges had to be overcome to build the furthest-seeing telescope humans have ever built.
“Engineering the James Webb Space Telescope” will take place from 7-8:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 at CMC Steamboat’s Allbright Auditorium, 1275 Crawford Ave. in Steamboat. Masks are required inside CMC campus buildings. Admission is free and all members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend.
For more information about the presentation, contact CMC Steamboat physical science associate professor Paul McCudden at 970-870-4537 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit our CMC Steamboat Springs campus page for more information.
