Roman Virtual Lecture Series

The Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope monthly virtual lecture series is run jointly by JPL, IPAC, Goddard, and STScI. These talks are open to the entire astronomy community and cover science, engineering, and technology related to the Roman mission. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Talks are ~20 minutes with ~10 minutes for Q/A, and are scheduled for the 3rd Thursday of each month from 1-1:30 pm Pacific / 4-4:30 pm Eastern.
