Preparations are underway for around 2 dozen people to spend 4 weeks in an intensive study program at the Vatican Observatory. The initiative marks a return of the Vatican Observatory summer school. It had been held every 2 years since 1986 before being paused during the pandemic. The program resumes next June. Those lucky enough to be selected will spend a month at the Vatican learning from world-renowned astronomers. Astronomer and Historian of Science with the Vatican Observatory, Chris Graney, joins to tell us more about the summer school, who is open to apply, where the students come from and what they will do and learn. Graney shares how the summer school has changed since it began in 1986. On another note, we have all seen the amazing images from the James Webb Space Telescope. Graney discusses how important these images are and what he hopes we learn from this project.
