Travel Through Space

Travel Through Space

See and celebrate the images from the James Webb Space Telescope projected onto the big screen. 

The James Webb Space Telescope’s revolutionary technology will study every phase of cosmic history — from within our solar system to the most distant observable galaxies in the early universe. This free program is appropriate for people of all ages. In addition to large projections of the images, there will be activities to learn about infrared telescopes and the way stars and galaxies are formed.

Explore images from the James Webb Space Telescope at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Jackson County Public Library. For more information visit or call 828.586.2016.

We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.
