The detailed design and initial development of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is well underway. In particular, ESA has chosen EADS/Astrium Germany for the development of the Near Infrared Spectrograph and the GSFC micro-shutter array for that instrument has successfully passed several critical milestones. The JWST Science Working Group will present the project status, the major technical challenges facing the observatory and JWST's scientific opportunities. We will allot ample time for addressing questions and comments.
