Inga Kamp and Joost Adema in CampusTV talking about JWST and ALMA

18 January 2024

Inga Kamp, professor in the field of Star and Planet Formation & Astrochemistry, and Joost Adema, ALMA project manager (NOVA/RUG) at the Kapteyn Astronomical Institue talk in an episode of CampusTV about their research with the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and the Atacama Large Millimetre Array (ALMA).

The James Webb Space Telescope, a collaboration between Europe, the US and Canada, launched in 2021 and is the most complex and powerful space telescope ever built. One of the 4 instruments on board is the Mid-Infrared Instrument, MIRI, which consists of an imager and a spectrograph. The optics of this spectrograph are made in the Netherlands by, among others, NOVA. Prof. Inga Kamp is co-Investigator of the MIRI European Consortium.

ALMA is a partnership between ESO (the European Southern Observatory), the US, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Chile. The telescope is a collection of 66 dishes that form an international observatory that can observe the radiation from some of the coldest objects in the universe.
