GLASS proposal selected for JWST Early Release Science program!

JWST

Our JWST early release science (ERS) proposal “Through the Looking GLASS: A JWST Exploration of Galaxy Formation and Evolution from Cosmic Dawn to Present Day” was selected as one of 13 successful programs.

The ERS programs will run in the first 5 months of JWST’s science operations (end of 2019 – early 2020)¬†and will showcase JWST’s instrument capabilities, and provide science-enabling products to help the¬†astronomical community maximize the science output of the JWST mission.

The GLASS ERS program will provide NIRISS and NIRSpec spectroscopy in the Frontier Field cluster Abell 2744, as well as NIRCam parallel imaging. More details about our ERS program are available at glass.astro.ucla.edu/ers
