Launch of the ESA/Webb Social Media Channels

1 April 2022

As the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope is going through commissioning and preparing to deliver awe-inspiring images and spectra, we invite you to follow the journey via ESA’s social media accounts. 

Be the first to find out about the commissioning steps, discover the first images and spectra to be released around July 2022 and, once Webb enters regular science observations, learn about its spectacular findings and what answers it brings to humanity’s outstanding questions about the Universe.

We encourage you to follow the ESA social media accounts for the James Webb Space Telescope to also discover how European scientists and engineers are contributing to this mission, which is a collaboration between NASA, ESA and CSA.

Pick your favourite channels from the list below.

  • Facebook — for up to date information and images from Webb.
  • Twitter — for insightful threads and exclusive Q&A’s with scientists and engineers involved in Webb operations and research. You’ll be able to send your own questions using #HeyWebb.
  • Instagram — for breathtaking images 
  • Giphy — for animations that mark the perfect reaction in any social media conversation.
  • YouTube — for deeper understanding of the space telescope and its mission, captured in the series #SpaceSparks.
  • LinkedIn — for more science- and career-related opportunities in regard to the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope and the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
  • Follow also the hashtag #WebbSeesFarther.

Enter Webb’s social media orbit and join humanity’s next greatest adventure, seeing farther into the Universe than even before!
