The James Webb Space Telescope, or JWST, launched on Christmas day and has just completed the most complex space deployment in history. Not many people know that this huge infrared telescope is going to be used to look at objects in our own Solar System.

Join NASA scientist Naomi Rowe-Gurney as she discusses her research into the Ice Giants Uranus and Neptune, and how this is just one of the many research areas that JWST can help with.

In this talk, Naomi explores what the Webb is and what big science questions may it help to answer. From planetary atmospheres to Kuiper Belt Objects and Comets, Webb is equipped to observe them all.
