221ST MEETING OF THE AMERICAN ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY 6-10 January 2013 LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA 135 Scientific Opportunities with the James Webb Space Telescope Monday, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM, Room 201A, Long Beach Convention Center The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will be a general purpose observatory that will provide research opportunities and support for thousands of astronomers. In this special session, speakers will describe JWST’s potential for advancing a number of core scientific topics that are at the forefront of astrophysical research, with specific links to JWST’s observing efficiency and multiple modes of imaging, spectroscopy, and coronography. Among the range of topics that will be covered in the session are: 1.) Solar System and Exoplanets 2.) Star Formation and Stellar Evolution 3.) Galactic Archaeology and Local Volume 4.) Dark Matter and Lensing 5.) Dark Energy 6.) First Galaxies Jason S. Kalirai Chair Space Telescope Science Institute. 135.01 Mark Dickinson NOAO.
