A Look into the James Webb Space Telescope

The James Webb Space Telescope is set to launch on December 22, and scientists from NASA, ESA, and the Canadian Space Agency are involved in this exciting mission. The telescope will observe more of the universe than ever before, searching for the very first stars and galaxies created after the Big Bang. JWST will use infrared light to study every phase of the cosmos, and Canada’s contribution to the mission guarantees observation time on the telescope.
