Having worked extensively with telescopes both in space and on the surface of the Earth, he recently started working with the brand new James Webb Space Telescope, the largest and the most advanced space telescope ever constructed and launched into space. This telescope offers unrivalled detail and clarity of the universe, from planets in our celestial backyard to the earliest galaxies and stars formed in our universe.
