Wednesday, 12:45 PM - 1:45 PM, Room 104A, Long Beach Convention Center The James Webb Space Telescope will be the most powerful telescope that astronomers have ever constructed, and is essential for answering the top science questions outlined in the Astronomy 2010 - 2020 Decadal Survey. The observatory continued to make progress in 2012 by achieving several important milestones, including the delivery of the first science instruments from ESA and CSA to NASA. JWST now enters a detailed integration and testing phase, in preparation for the 2018 launch. The 2013 JWST Town Hall meeting will feature three brief presentations followed by ample time for community discussion. The presentations will be given by 1.) Dr. Eric Smith (NASA/HQ - Program Status), 2.) Dr. Randy Kimble (NASA/GSFC - Integration and Testing), and 3.) Dr. Mike Brown (Caltech – Solar System and Planetary Science with JWST) Jason S.
