JWST at work

It is a little-broadcast fact that the UK had a leading role on one of the four instruments on JWST and our speaker John Thatcher was very fortunate to be the project manager for one of them.

About the Event

Join us as we learn more about the instruments on JWST from the project manager of one of them. We will also be reviewing images from the largest space telescope ever launched.

About our speaker: John retired in May 2013 after over 30 years working in the space industry, mainly involved in spacecraft engineering and project management.  During his career ‘in space’ he has been fortunate to have worked on most aspects of spacecraft engineering covering design, development, manufacture, integration, test, launch and operations of communication and scientific missions, including the industrial management of the Beagle 2 Mars lander project in its early years. For his last decade at work John was the European Consortium Project Manager for the Mid-InfraRed Instrument on the James Webb Space Telescope managing it through to delivery to NASA in 2012 and still in contact with the team operating the instrument.
