America’s next great space telescope is getting ready to launch into space. It is the $8.8 billion James Webb Space Telescope – nearly 20 years in the building and even more powerful than its predecessor, the famous Hubble Space Telescope. The NASA scientist who has been heading the team that built this magnificent new satellite will be the monthly guest speaker at the Martz/Kohl Observatory at 8:00 pm this Wednesday evening, 176 Robin Hill Road in Frewsburg. NASA Scientist John Mangus, a native of nearby Warren, PA, will tell about the adventure of building a telescope that will peer more than 13 billion light years into the farthest reaches of the universe and back in time nearly to the Big Bang itself. John’s talk will be geared to entertain and amaze the general audience, back yard stargazer and the amateur astronomer alike. An especially great experience for students of any age. A lively Q&A time always follows our guest speakers’ talks. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Wednesday, 8:00 p.m. The Martz/Kohl Observatory! http://ow.ly/wLj330byU2G
