    Edge of the universe: the James Webb Space Telescope

    The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has a lot to live up to as the successor of the Hubble Space Telescope. In the three decades since it was launched in 1990, Hubble has revealed the wonders of the universe in unprecedented detail. It’s been used to study cutting-edge topics like dark energy and exoplanets that were scarcely dreamed of when it began operation. Plus, it has captured the public’s imagination to the extent that it is now a household name. 

    The James Webb Space Telescope, known as Webb (like “Hubble”), will be operated primarily by NASA, which is providing the bulk of the funding, with the European Space Agency (ESA) as a junior partner. The telescope is named after one of NASA’s early administrators, James E. Webb, who oversaw the creation of the Apollo program in the 1960s, according to NASA.
