Beaker Street Festival Headline Program – Time travel in space

  • - (AEST)
  • Theatre Royal, The Headberg
    Cnr Campbell & Collins Streets, Hobart TAS 7000, Australia

Join Dr Martin George on a journey to the oldest stars and galaxies, when our universe was young and the first sources of light were forming. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is the most powerful telescope ever, but how does it work and why is it capable of showing us beautifully sharp images from an unimaginably distant past?

Following the talk, we’ll take in a presentation of some of Webb’s most stunning and impressive images, set to live music.

Our MC for this event will be Mark Horstman.

Immediately following this performance, the audience and speakers will be invited across the street to Beaker Street’s Festival Hub at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Featuring delicious food and drink, live music, science/art exhibitions, 150+ scientists to chat with, and more — you won’t want to miss it.
