James Webb Telescope Unfolds in Space

James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will study the Solar System, directly image exoplanets, photograph the first galaxies, and explore the mysteries of the origins of the Universe. Its ability to capture infrared light means it will be able to “see” the cosmos as it was when just a few hundred million years old, capturing images of the first-ever stars and galaxies. For the next 20 years, it will observe the Universe from the second Lagrange point (L2) around a million miles/1.5 million kilometers from Earth. It will send its images back to Earth via NASA’s Deep Space Network. Read More
