Three days ago on Monday 24th January 2022 at 19:00GMT, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) arrived at L2: the location where observations of Outer Space will take place.

This means we've got a whole six months to wait until everything's calibrated and ready to take the first images (aka JWST's first light). So, what is there to do until then (well, apart from work, exams and other life events)? Here is a list of resources/activities for you to peruse/complete at your leisure so you can be fully briefed and ready for the day (some time in July/August):

If you find any other fantastic resources that you think would also sit well on this list, then please share them with me so I can publish them on this page! Use the email address: "webmaster.adas@gmail.com".
