About this Episode

In this week's questions and answers show, I explain how JWST and other telescopes see color, how images from observatories are released to the public, and how much of the sky can JWST see. Also, a bunch of non-Webb questions too.

00:00 Start
01:55 [Tatooine] How does JWST see color?
09:58 [Coruscant] How are astronomical images released to the public?
12:52 [Hoth] How does JWST handle spacedust?
14:48 [Naboo] How is JWST pointed?
16:39 [Kamino] Could dark matter be detected in specific parts of the Universe?
18:52 [Bespin] Is dark matter just a smart guess?
23:10 [Mustafar] Why does Earth have water and the Moon doesn't?
26:09 [Alderaan] Is Panspermia inevitable?
28:28 [Dagobah] Is the Big Bang a past event or is it still happening?
29:43 [Yavin] What's the best telescope to see planets?
31:19 [Mandalore] If we mapped the CMB from Andromeda, would it look different?
33:10 [Geonosis] Why do we see light from long ago, shouldn't it have passed us?
34:49 [Corellia] How can we promote diversity in STEM?
