How everyone can help us find new worlds

Dr Belinda Nicholson (Postdoctoral researcher)
With the huge amount of data coming out of surveys to find planets, there is a role for citizen scientists - i.e. you! - to help sift through the signals and find previously unknown planets. This talk will explore some of the amazing systems found by citizen scientists and how you can get involved to find more of them!

Unveiling the first galaxies in the Universe: a new frontier with JWST

Dr Alex Cameron (Postdoctoral researcher)
The recently launched James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will revolutionise our understanding of galaxies in the early Universe. When did the first galaxies form? What did these first galaxies look like? JWST will provide unprecedented new insight into these questions which ultimately help us to understand how our own Milky Way galaxy came to be.
This talk will start by looking into what makes JWST so special. Alex will then talk about what he hopes to learn about galaxies in the early Universe from the research he will do with JWST when it becomes fully operational later this year.
