sci21011 — Announcement
Science Outreach and New Website for ESA/Webb
29 December 2021
-By Bethany Downer -
The ESA/Hubble outreach team is excited to share that our team will play a major role in the ESA/Webb science outreach. The brand new ESA/Webb website is also now live at ESAWebb.org.
The ESA/Hubble outreach team is coordinated through the ESA Office at the Space Telescope Science Institute. While this Hubble outreach work will continue in 2022, it will also now include the coordination of ESA/Webb scientific outreach, especially as we prepare for science operations.
We are also delighted to announce that the ESA/Webb website, ESAwebb.org, is now live! This website will be showcasing and disseminating updates during the telescope’s commissioning, in coordination with NASA, and will then share various science outreach products once the telescope begins full science operations. This website will be home to the ESA/Webb content that the scientific community and the public have become familiar with, including press releases, imagery, announcements, Space Sparks videos, public engagement initiatives, and more. Of particular note is the first ESA/Webb Space Sparks video, which dives into Webb’s science goals and is now available on the new website.
The ESA/Hubble & ESA/Webb outreach team looks forward to continuing this widespread level of engagement and reach with the European Hubble and Webb communities and the general public throughout 2022. Stay tuned!
