What’s in the stars for the future of astronomy? Find out Friday (March 30) when Rogier Windhorst, professor of astronomy at Arizona State University, gives a free lecture on the next generation of space instruments at 7 p.m. in Bateman Physical Sciences Center, F-173, on ASU’s Tempe campus.

Following the lecture will be a free astronomy open house until 10 p.m. on the roof of the center’s H-Wing.

Windhorst’s lecture is titled “How Will the James Webb Space Telescope Measure the Epochs of First Light and Galaxy Assembly in the post Hubble Era?” According to NASA, the telescope is scheduled to launch in 2018.
