Deep Space Diary

Activity 4.3

Webb will study our Universe from deep space for at least five years. During this time, different researchers will use it to study specific space objects and answer scientific questions about our Universe. In this maths-based activity, students take on the role of scientific investigator, ‘calibrating’ Webb so that it can then look at objects of interest.
