Ever since the humans started to think, they have been curious about the heavens. Over the years, we have taken advantage of technological advances to gain better understanding of the universe. In some cases, this curiosity has propelled the technological advances that have been extremely beneficial in our daily lives as well. In this talk, Mr. Ahmed will discuss how our knowledge has expanded via space based astronomy with observatories such as Hubble Space Telescope and what we hope to learn with the James Web Space Telescope.
