On Monday, July 11th, at 6:00 p.m. central, the LaSalle Public Library will virtually host NASA Solar System Ambassadors Joel Knapper and Scott Pellican when they discuss the James Webb Space Telescope as the world waits for the first images, which are set to be released on July 12th.
In this virtual program, NASA Solar System Ambassadors Joel Knapper and Scott Pellican will look back on the long and tumultuous journey of the most powerful telescope ever built, from concept to launch, its "30 Days of Terror", and the science and discovery it promises to deliver. The James Webb Space Telescope will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide.
Joel Knapper has been hooked on NASA and space exploration since the seventh grade. Joel earned a Bachelor of Science degree in English Education from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Through the years, Joel has never lost his interest in the space program and continues to learn more each day.
Scott Pellican is a retired Senior Manager, having worked for a large multi-state contract cleaning company. As a nine-year-old in 1967, he sent a hand-written letter to NASA Headquarters asking for any information available. When the rocket posters and photos of astronauts arrived in the mail, he was hooked for life. Like all Americans his age, he watched man walk on the Moon with his parents on their black and white TV.
This program is free and open to all. It will be virtual via Zoom. Register – https://bit.ly/3ub3wMS. For more information, please contact the LaSalle Public Library at 815-223-2341.
