The James Webb Space Telescope was launched on 25 December 2021, having been developed by NASA in partnership with the European and Canadian Space Agencies. It is the largest space telescope ever constructed, and will extend humanity's view of the universe into the infrared spectrum thus revealing how our galaxies and structure have evolved over cosmic time. It will also search exoplanet atmospheres for evidence of life. In this multi-media presentation I will also discuss possible future work to be undertaken by the JWST Project Team.

Dr. Matthew Greenhouse is Project Scientist for the Webb science instrument payload. He has served on several NASA and European Space Agency (ESA) flight mission teams, and is a member of the NASA Astrophysics Working Group. He supports ground-based astronomy in many ways, including with the National Science Foundation Committee of Visitors. He is the recipient of more than 20 individual performance awards such as the NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal and the Robert H. Goddard award for Exceptional Achievement in Science.
