DAVENPORT, Iowa — The Putnam Museum and Science Center has joined hundreds of sites across the country to celebrate the release of the first science images from the James Webb Space Telescope, NASA’s next great space science observatory.

As the largest and most complex observatory ever launched into space, Webb has been going through a six-month period of preparation before it can begin science work. The Webb, a partnership with ESA (European Space Agency) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), will release its first full-color images and spectroscopic data on July 12.

The Putnam Museum will show these first images on the Giant Screen as well as offer space-themed activities and films throughout the day. Included in general admission, more information and a detailed schedule of activities can be found at https://www.putnam.org/calendar/webb-telescope-images. To learn more about the Webb telescope, visit webb.nasa.gov and webbtelescope.org.
