ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - North Cross School hosted a talk Tuesday from Dr. Alison Nordt. She is the Director for Space Science and Instrumentation at Lockheed Martin in Palo Alto California.

She is a graduate of North Cross and has worked with multiple space agencies to develop and build instrumentation onboard the James Webb Space Telescope.

The telescope launched December 25 and has been going through stages of deployment since it left the Earth.

The plan is to have the telescope in full operation by this Summer.
