What If World - Stories for Kids

Monday, 3 January

We are joined by planetary scientist and NASA astronomer Prabal Saxena, who helps Cthunkle learn about gravity and the amazing James Webb Space Telescope, which launched on Christmas Day, December 25th, 2021.

Lessons include: science and discovery can take time, and we can’t let frustration and impatience allow us to make bad decisions; there are many paths to our goals, and some of those paths may lead us in new and exciting directions!

You can learn more about the James Webb Space Telescope by visiting jwst.nasa.gov and find out more about our amazing guest, Prabal Saxena, at prabalsaxena.com. You can watch the launch video right here.
