speaker: Eiichi Egami

After the successful launch and nearly flawless commissioning, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has started to produce exciting results rapidly, In this talk, I will present a brief overview of the commissioning process and a selection of exciting first scientific results covering a wide range of topics, from exoplanets to high-redshift Universe. I will especially focus on the JWST Advanced Deep Extragalactic Survey (JADES) and its recent discoveries of the most distant galaxies at z>12 with spectroscopic confirmation.
