James Webb Space Telescope World Bicycle Tour


Hi! My name is Dr. Scott Acton. I work on the James Webb Space Telescope. Starting on AprilĀ 1, I am going to take some time off my job so I can bicycle around the world (or nearly so). As I travel, I will stop and talk to schools, colleges, communities and individuals about this amazing telescope which is going to replace the Hubble in a few years. I will keep a daily blog and picture gallery on this website so you can keep up with my progress.

* Note: This web site and the JWST World Bicycle Tour are not associated with NASA or Ball Aerospace in any way.
