The South by Southwest festival being held in Austin this month features a special three-day exhibit of NASA's next great space observatory, the James Webb Space Telescope. A full-scale model of the Webb is being set up on the banks of the city's Lady Bird Johnson Lake. The tennis-court-sized replica is part of NASA's effort to bring the excitement of space exploration to people of all ages. The host of the Behind the Webb video podcast series, Mary Estacion, previews this unique educational experience.
