Laatsch featured in BDN editorial about James Webb Space Telescope

Shawn Laatsch, director of the Versant Power Astronomy Center, was quoted in a Bangor Daily News editorial about the first images released from the James Webb Space Telescope. “In my nearly four decades in the astronomy education and outreach profession I’ve never seen such stunning images as were released today by the James Webb Space Telescope. These five exceptionally stunning images cover all areas of the cosmos and reveal new and unexpected details about the birth and death of stars, composition of exoplanet atmospheres, [and] the ways galaxies interact and the sheer number of them in our universe,” Laatsch said.
