    The James Webb Space Telescope is the next great space science observatory following the Hubble space telescope, designed to answer outstanding questions about the Universe and to make breakthrough discoveries in all fields of astronomy. the James Webb will see farther into our origins: from the formation of stars and planets, to the birth of the first galaxies in the early Universe. Webb is an international partnership between NASA, ESA and CSA. The telescope will launch on an Ariane 5 from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana.The instrument is a camera and spectrometer for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), which is so sensitive that it can see a candle on a Jupiter moon. A true marvel of cosmology is about to enter the stage this Halloween.

  • James Webb Space Telescope Is About To Fly: Are You Ready For The Revolution?

    14:26

    Guys, cross your fingers! There are still several months to the launch scheduled for next October 31, but, apparently, in front of the James Webb Space Telescope, the instrument that is about to revolutionize astronomy, has opened a fast highway, without obstacles or clouds on the horizon.

    Developed by NASA with the collaboration of the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency, the Webb Telescope should have been in orbit for a few years, at least according to the initial plans of its designers, but a host of problems has raged against this project. After all, building a satellite and put it in orbit is difficult and expensive, but building a space telescope weighing 6.5 tons is enormously more so. Progressive postponements due to technical problems and various contingencies were compounded by economic ones. The planned cost in 1996 was about two billion dollars, with the launch scheduled between 2007 and 2011. A first postponement brought the cost to 4.5 billion; after that in 2011 followed a deep revision of the project, made of cancellations, reconsiderations and battles with the U.S. Congress for funding.
    It is certainly true that the new space telescope will allow us to observe distant galaxies and stars with a definition never seen before, giving us the opportunity to observe the first lights that lit up the Universe, about 13.8 billion years ago, but in the end, it will cost at least $ 9.5 billion, and more than a billion will be needed for its maintenance and management of the mission once the telescope will be in orbit.
    Was it worth it? You be the judge!
    The proposal to build a new large space telescope, dedicating it to the memory of James Webb, NASA's director at the time of Apollo, was first floated in 1996. The idea, which still remains the basis of the project, was to offer an instrument for the observation of deep space to complement Hubble, the space telescope that for 30 years has been offering amazing and useful images for research on our solar system, the Milky Way and other galaxies.
    While the James Webb Space Telescope is billed as the successor to the legendary Hubble Space Telescope, in a sense it is not. The Hubble is primarily an optical telescope, capturing wavelengths of light similar to those used by the human eye. But the Webb is different. It will observe entirely in the infrared. In other words, it will study a universe drawn by radiation that reaches us from space at a much higher wavelength, and that is largely invisible to human experience.
    In trying to extend observations of the sky to these spectral bands, we are in fact faced with the problem of absorption by the Earth's atmosphere. In fact, only a small part of the infrared bands, the one closest to the red, is accessible to observation from Earth, while the mid and far-infrared never reach the Earth's surface. The atmosphere becomes transparent again only at wavelengths longer than about 1 mm, making observations from Earth in the radio band possible.

    1:12:09

    This week on The Space Update we chat with Dr Jonathan Gardner from NASA Goddard on the James Webb Space Telescope!

    The James Webb Space Telescope will be the largest, most powerful and complex space telescope ever built and launched into space. It will fundamentally alter our understanding of the universe.

    The James Webb Space Telescope (sometimes called JWST or Webb) is an orbiting infrared observatory that will complement and extend the discoveries of the Hubble Space Telescope, with longer wavelength coverage and greatly improved sensitivity. The longer wavelengths enable Webb to look much closer to the beginning of time and to hunt for the unobserved formation of the first galaxies, as well as to look inside dust clouds where stars and planetary systems are forming today.

  • James Webb Space Telescope Launch and Deployment

    12:03

    Northrop Grumman is proud to lead the industry team building NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. This revolutionary observatory is the largest telescope built for space and the most powerful infrared telescope ever made. It is the scientific successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. The Webb telescope will travel 1 million miles from earth and look back over 13.5 billion years, providing images of the first galaxies formed and observing unexplored planets around distant stars. The breakthrough technology developed for the Webb Telescope will expand our understanding of the universe, rewrite textbooks and inspire a future generation of engineers and scientists.

    This animation captures Webb’s journey into orbit, 1 million miles away from earth, depicting the sequence of events surrounding the launch and deployment of this game changing observatory. The travel time, distance and transformation of the telescope as it deploys are included in this sequence.

  • The History And Future Of The James Webb Space Telescope

    21:18

    On March 30, 2021, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will blast off from the European Space Agency’s European spaceport in Kourou, French Giana on board an Ariane 5 rocket.

    It’ll fly to the Sun-Earth L2 Lagrange point, a relatively stable spot in space that keeps the glare from the Sun, Earth, and Moon all in a tiny spot in the sky. Then, it’ll unfurl its tennis court-sized sunshade, fold out its gigantic 6.5-meter mirror, and peer out into the distant cosmos.

    Over the course of the next 10 years, this infrared observatory will help astronomers learn about the earliest moments of the Universe, directly observe the atmospheres of planets orbiting other stars, and peer at newly forming stars and planets.

    And if you listened to the words I just said with equal parts terror and skepticism, I don’t blame you. James Webb’s path to space has been long and tortuous. And the risks that the mission still faces are very real. Hopefully, the science will be worth it. Hopefully, nothing else goes wrong from now until deployment.

    So today, I want to do a deep dive into James Webb. To talk about the history of the mission, why it exists, how the development went, and where it stands today.

    I’ll warn you though, the length of this video is going to go way over budget.

    Our Book is out!

    james webb space telescope - JWST - WEBB - james webb telescope launch update

    The James Webb Space Telescope (sometimes called JWST or Webb) will be a large infrared telescope with a 6.5-meter primary mirror. The telescope will be launched on an Ariane 5 rocket from French Guiana in 2021.

    The Webb telescope will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System.

    The Webb telescope was formerly known as the Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST); it was renamed in September 2002 after a former NASA administrator, James Webb.

    Webb is an international collaboration between NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is managing the development effort. The main industrial partner is Northrop Grumman; the Space Telescope Science Institute will operate Webb after launch.

    Several innovative technologies have been developed for Webb. These include a primary mirror made of 18 separate segments that unfold and adjust to shape after launch. The mirrors are made of ultra-lightweight beryllium. Webb's biggest feature is a tennis court sized five-layer sunshield that attenuates heat from the Sun more than a million times. The telescope’s four instruments - cameras and spectrometers - have detectors that are able to record extremely faint signals. One instrument (NIRSpec) has programmable microshutters, which enable observation up to 100 objects simultaneously. Webb also has a cryocooler for cooling the mid-infrared detectors of another instrument (MIRI) to a very cold 7 kelvins (minus 447 Fahrenheit) so they can work.

  • Is Astronomy Ready for the James Webb Space Telescope?

    1:16:09

    NASA’s next astrophysics flagship mission, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), will soon be ready to explore the universe, but will scientists be ready to take full advantage of this incredibly powerful observatory? What will it take to be able to peer back in time to an era when the first stars and galaxies came into existence or peer with unprecedented vision at planets around stars other than our Sun? Preparations for the first observations with the telescope are underway, and astronomers are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to propose science programs that will lead to a host of new discoveries.

    In this lecture, Ken Sembach, director of the Space Telescope Science Institute, will highlight some of the exciting science to be conducted in JWST’s first year of observations. He will also provide a behind-the-scenes look at the complex science and flight operations activities needed to prepare the telescope and the astronomical community for an amazing journey across time and space.

  • NASAs Mega Hubble - The Roman Space Telescope

    13:10


    What do you do when the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) makes you an offer you can't refuse?. Well in the case of NASA you update an existing design to create a Hubble on steroids that can cover the same amount of sky as one hundred Hubble's, drastically cutting down the time survey the sky and also more accurately look for Neptune sized planets around nearby stars and gather evidence to hopefully find out what dark energy really is, this is NASA upcoming Roman space telescope.

  • What Comes After James Webb and WFIRST? Four Amazing Future Space Telescopes

    14:50

    The Hubble Space Telescope has been in space for 28 years, producing some of the most beautiful and scientifically important images of the cosmos that humanity has ever taken. But let’s face it, Hubble is getting old, and it probably won’t be with us for too much longer.

    NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is in the final stages of testing, and WFIRST is waiting in the wings. You’ll be glad to know there are even more space telescopes in the works, a set of four powerful instruments in design right now, which will be part of the next Decadal Survey, and helping to answer the most fundamental questions about the cosmos.

    NASA's James Webb Space Telescope Amazing Facts and Launch Date

    NASA James Web Telescope Facts

    The space science community, this year Bring the much-anticipated launch of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. Webb promises a multitude of discoveries related to our understanding of the universe. Webb will be the first telescope to detect light from the most distant galaxies in the Universe. These first galaxies formed about 13.5 billion years ago, only 300 or so million years after the Big Bang.

    Webb carries advanced technologies to tackle some of the most fundamental questions about the Universe. Launching such a large telescope into space is an incredible engineering challenge. Fully deployed, Webb is too large to fit inside any rocket.

    Engineers designed it to be folded, like origami, to fit inside the Rocket After launch, controllers on the ground deploy Webb remotely. The James Webb Space Telescope will be Used to explore. To challenge theories. To see sights yet unseen. To unfold the beauty and mystery in the Universe, To peer into atmospheres of planets orbiting distant stars.

    It is Equipped with the largest primary mirror ever to be flown in space. It is more than 6 times the size of the Hubble Space Telescope primary mirror. This Telescope will change our view about The Universe.

    Hubble and all the world’s telescopes continued to examine the sky and found a number of fascinating things. Close to home, we’ll see news on Saturn’s rings, storms on Jupiter, and a comet with two tails. A little further out we’ll see updates on the exoplanet Fomalhaut b, Betelgeuse dimming, a moving Bat Shadow, an interesting globular star cluster, and a fly-through the Orion Nebula. We’ll cover Wolf-Rayet stars, a fading planetary nebula, and a look at the age of stars in the Milky Way Central Bulge. Still further out, we’ll see some spectacular nebula around the Large Magellanic Cloud. We’ll see a few distant galaxies, a fading Supernova and an early galaxy as seen through gravitational lensing. We’ll end with a look at the new James Webb Space Telescope due for launch this year and a few of the astronomical areas it will investigate – dust and the first stars.

    What is the James Webb Space Telescope?
    The James Webb Space Telescope, also called Webb or JWST, is a large, space-based observatory, optimized for infrared wavelengths, which will complement and extend the discoveries of the Hubble Space Telescope.
    What are the main science goals of Webb?
    Webb has four mission science goals:
    Search for the first galaxies or luminous objects that formed after the Big Bang.
    Determine how galaxies evolved from their formation until the present.
    Observe the formation of stars from the first stages to the formation of planetary systems.
    How big is it?
    The most important size of a telescope is the diameter of the primary mirror, which is about 6.5 meters for Webb.
    But how is it that Webb, with a mirror six times the size of Hubble, only weighs half as much?
    The reason is quite simple! There has been a lot of progress in technology since Hubble was built.
    Why does Webb have a segmented, unfolding primary mirror?
    Webb needs to have an unfolding mirror because the mirror is so large that it otherwise cannot fit in the launch shroud of currently available rockets.
    Why is Webb optimized for near and mid-infrared light?
    The primary goals of Webb are to study galaxy, star and planet formation in the Universe. To see the very first stars and galaxies form in the early Universe, we have to look deep into space to look back in time (because it takes light time to travel from there to here, the farther out we look, the further we look back in time).
    Why do we have to go to space at all? Can we not get these data with large telescopes on the ground, using adaptive optics?
    The Earth's atmosphere is nearly opaque and glows brightly at most of the infrared wavelengths that Webb will observe, so a cold telescope in space is required
    How faint can Webb see?
    Webb is designed to discover and study the first stars and galaxies that formed in the early Universe. To see these faint objects, it must be able to detect things that are ten billion times as faint as the faintest stars visible without a telescope. This is 10 to 100 times fainter than Hubble can see.
    What is Webb's angular resolution, and how will its images compare to Hubble's? Will they be as beautiful?
    Angular resolution is the term astronomers use to describe the sharpness of an image. There are two factors that affect how sharp an image is - the diameter of the mirror and the wavelength being observed. Webb's angular resolution will be the same as Hubble's, but in the near-infrared. This means that Webb images will appear just as sharp as Hubble's do.
    Will Webb see planets around other stars?
    The Webb will be able to detect the presence of planetary systems around nearby stars from their infrared light (heat).
    Can Webb observe planets in our own Solar System?
    Yes.
    Why has the Ariane 5 been chosen to launch Webb? Why not change to Space X?
    The James Webb Space Telescope will be launched on an Ariane 5 rocket. The launch vehicle is part of the European contribution to the mission.
    Why can’t Webb be repaired like Hubble in case of damage?
    Hubble is in low-Earth orbit, located approximately 600 km away from the Earth, and is therefore readily accessible for servicing.
    What happens after Webb is launched?
    In the first hour: Starting at liftoff, the Ariane rocket will provide thrust for a little over 8 minutes. Webb will separate from the Ariane V launch vehicle a half-hour after launch and deploy the solar array immediately afterward.

  • NASA|Recent Testing of the |James Webb Space Telescope

    47:51

    Created: Jan 18 2021

    Members of the media were invited to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston on Jan. 10, to hear about the results of recent cryogenic vacuum tests on the James Webb Space Telescope, and the next steps on the observatory’s path to space. Webb was tested as a complete optical system in Chamber A at Johnson, which mimics the space environment the telescope will experience during its mission. Built in 1965 to conduct thermal-vacuum testing on the Apollo command and service modules, Chamber A is the largest structure of its kind in the world and is a listed National Historic Landmark. The James Webb Space Telescope is the world’s premier infrared space observatory of the next decade. Webb will help to solve mysteries of our solar system, look to distant worlds orbiting other stars, and probe the mysterious structures and origins of our universe and our place in it.

    Hello and welcome to the 2020 How far Away Is It review. It’s been a terrible year for the globe, but Hubble and all the world’s telescopes continued to examine the sky and found a number of fascinating things. Close to home, we’ll see news on Saturn’s rings, storms on Jupiter, and a comet with two tails. A little further out we’ll see updates on the exoplanet Fomalhaut b, Betelgeuse dimming, a moving Bat Shadow, an interesting globular star cluster, and a fly-through the Orion Nebula. We’ll cover Wolf-Rayet stars, a fading planetary nebula, and a look at the age of stars in the Milky Way Central Bulge. Still further out, we’ll see some spectacular nebula around the Large Magellanic Cloud. We’ll see a few distant galaxies, a fading Supernova and an early galaxy as seen through gravitational lensing. We’ll end with a look at the new James Webb Space Telescope due for launch this year and a few of the astronomical areas it will investigate – dust and the first stars.

  • JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE - Hubble Successor

    12:23

    Alien-hunting James Webb Space Telescope -NASA completes final tests and It's almost ready.
    Hubble Space telescope successor, James Webb Space Telescope, is almost ready to fly.
    It will be the largest, most powerful and complex space telescope ever built and launched into space. It will fundamentally alter our understanding of the universe.
    NASA has completed testing on the James Webb Space telescope, which ensures it will be able to withstand the launch and operate fully when it is in Earth's orbit. The space agency said there were two significant tests, which shows that all the internal electronics are performing as they should be and that it will withstand the pressure when it is being blasted into orbit. The testing took place at Northrop Grumman, in Virginia, which took a total of 17 days. This means we are getting closer to the launch date!
    But what's the James Webb Space Telescope? How does it work? Wh will his contribution be fundamental for Astrophysicists?

  • James Webb Telescope|Recent Update!

    4:18

    Astronomers all over the world are eagerly awaiting the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope. The infrared space telescope, which will carry the largest astronomical mirror ever flown in space is one of the most complex observatories ever built. It will allow unprecedented science, including investigations into the atmospheres of exoplanets and the formation of galaxies, addressing fundamental questions in astronomy. The mission is an international collaboration between NASA, ESA and the Canadian Space Agency, and is planned for launch in 2021 on a European Ariane 5 rocket.

  • Webb Telescope Analyzing Baby Solar Systems

    10:51

    Our Solar System is mature. It has eight planets, a number of other dwarf planets like Pluto, and trillions of asteroids and comets. If we managed to travel back in time, what would we see as our solar system formed? Because we can't really travel back in time and see the solar system from outside, researchers can examine different star systems that are actively forming--along with the mix of gas and dust that enshrouds their baby stars--to learn about this process. Researchers will make use of NASA’s upcoming James Webb Space Telescope to study more than 50 planet-forming disks in numerous levels of growth to find out which molecules are current and ideally pinpoint similarities, helping to shape our thinking about how solar systems come to be.

  • James Webb Space Telescope | James Webb Space Telescope Vs Hubble Telescope

    James Webb Space Telescope | James Webb Space Telescope Vs Hubble Telescope
    The James Webb Space Telescope is the most ambitious and complex astronomical project ever built, and bringing it to life is a long, meticulous process. The wait will be a little longer now but the breakthrough science that it will enable is absolutely worth it, says Günther Hasinger, ESA Director of Science.
    Following an internal inquiry earlier this year, NASA established an Independent Review Board to assess progress on the James Webb Space Telescope – a collaboration between NASA, ESA and the Canadian Space Agency.
    The board evaluated a number of factors, from the technical challenges to remaining tasks leading to launch, and has unanimously recommended that development on the project should continue.
    The Webb is an unprecedented endeavour in space science, requiring utmost ingenuity in both the scientific and technical domains. Several new technologies have been developed and mastered to make its distinctive features possible, including the deployable nature of the observatory, which will carry the largest mirror ever flown into space, and the low-temperatures needed to operate its infrared instruments that will peer farther and deeper into our cosmic origins.
    From the secrets of stars and planets taking shape in our Milky Way to the first galaxies that ever formed in the history of our 13.8-billion year old Universe, from the mysteries of our Solar System to those of planets that circle stars beyond our Sun, the Webb will address fundamental questions in astronomy that can only be tackled with such a complex observatory.
    In its report, the review board stressed the project’s significant complexity, incredible scientific potential, and importance to astrophysics. Because of the sheer size and complexity of the Webb, the process of integrating and testing parts is more complicated than that of most space science missions. The new launch date in early 2022 was estimated taking this into account and incorporating the recommendations from the review board.
    The next step is now to complete the extensive battery of testing on the spacecraft element of the Webb. Once this is done, it will be integrated with the other half of the observatory: the telescope and science instrument module. This module, which completed its tests last year, includes the NIRSpec and MIRI instruments – part of Europe’s contribution to the observatory.
    The fully-assembled observatory then will undergo a series of challenging environmental tests and a final deployment test before it is shipped to Europe’s spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, to be launched on an Ariane 5 rocket.
    The James Webb Space Telescope is an international project led by NASA with its partners, ESA and the Canadian Space Agency.

  • Whats The Point Of The James Webb Space Telescope?

    12:28

    From what it is, to whether it'll truly help us understand the universe more. Join me as we explore What's the Point of the James Webb Space Telescope?
    Ok, I know that the obvious thing to say here is, Well it's a telescope, and thus it'll help us look at space, so why wouldn't we want it? And yeah, that is the defining argument that we'll be showing off a little bit later, but we need to look at this as a whole to help determine what is going on, and what isn't. For example, the James Webb Space Telescope isn't just a telescope, it's actually a much more powerful observatory, one that'll use various devices to help us scan the universe.
    The problem here though is that this observatory has been getting constant delays over the years. What's more, its BILLIONS of dollars over budget. That's right, there was BILLIONS of dollars put into this satellite just so we could look at parts of space that we're likely never going to reach in our lifetime. The next lifetime of the next generation, and so on and so forth. That money could've been used for other space projects, or used to help benefit other people in the world (which is more important now than ever given recent events like the wildfires in Australia and the earthquakes in Puerto Rico.
    So we really need to ask ourselves, is this telescope and observatory really worth all the time and effort being put into it? Well, a lot of people seem to think so, which is why the project hasn't been scrapped as of yet.
    The James Webb Space Telescope is the most ambitious and complex astronomical project ever built, and bringing it to life is a long, meticulous process. The wait will be a little longer now but the breakthrough science that it will enable is absolutely worth it, says Günther Hasinger, ESA Director of Science.
    If it helps you feel better about the project as a whole, NASA (who is a major collaborator on the project alongside the ESA and the Canadian Space Agency) actually held a review for the project last year to see if they should scrap it given all the time and money that had been put into it with no clear ending in sight at the time.
    But, after discussing the pros and cons of the device, it was made clear that the project should continue and that the James Webb Space Telescope should be finished. In fact, it was voted upon unanimously that it should be continued, that's a lot of confidence in the device. But what makes this telescope so special?
    The Webb is an unprecedented endeavour in space science, requiring utmost ingenuity in both the scientific and technical domains. Several new technologies have been developed and mastered to make its distinctive features possible, including the deployable nature of the observatory, which will carry the largest mirror ever flown into space, and the low-temperatures needed to operate its infrared instruments that will peer farther and deeper into our cosmic origins.
    So yeah, that's a lot of cool stuff that's attached to one place. But what is the endgame here? What does it all really mean? And why can't we use other things like the Hubble Space Telescope or TESS to find what it is aiming to do?
    Well, that all has to do with what kind of telescope/observatory this thing is. You see, the James Webb Space Telescope doesn't operate on the same wavelengths as things like the Hubble.
    The Hubble is primarily an optical telescope, capturing wavelengths of light similar to the range that the human eye does, and extending past that a little bit into the infrared and ultraviolet (UV) portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. In essence, the Hubble is a giant orbiting space eyeball, delivering stunning pictures that you would see, if your optic nerves were similarly equipped.
    That's why we're able to get such great pictures, but it's still limited in what it can see. With the James Webb Space Telescope, it works at a different wavelength entirely.
    It will be observing entirely in the infrared, barely scratching the deepest possible reds that a human can see. In other words, the JWST will be studying a universe that is largely invisible to human experience.
    So basically, the reason that we need this telescope/observatory is because without it, we will be unable to observe a large part of the universe that we can only speculate on right now with the other devices we have. Plus, since it's in space, it'll have a great range and less things to obstruct it from the goals of NASA, the ESA and Canada's space agency. So yeah, it's costing a fortune, but the potential benefits and rewards from having this thing in the sky watching the stars are numerous.
    You might be thinking, but what is it that is blocking other devices from seeing things in infrared?, well the answer to that is light pollution. Which is not only abundant here on Earth, it's literally the thing that restricts people from seeing things in the sky in infrared.
    Infrared light pollution comes from many different places.

    NASA Delays Launch of James Webb Space Telescope Again — This Time to 2021

    “The liftoff of Webb, the successor to the agency's iconic Hubble Space Telescope, has been pushed back from May 2020 to March 2021, NASA officials announced today (June 27). The project's development cost has risen from $8 billion to $8.8 billion, and its total lifecycle price tag now stands at $9.66 billion, they added.”

    The launch of Nasa's giant Webb telescope has been delayed, again

    “Nasa cited misplaced optimism as the underlying problem here – for an observatory of this scale, the slightest oversight can lead to untold issues. An independent review board set up by Nasa to ensure oversight concluded that there are “no small” problems on a beast of this size.”

    The James Webb Space Telescope

    “Webb will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System.”

  • Mike Menzel 81: Science & Systems Design of NASAs James Webb Space Telescope

    49:15

    Title: Science & Systems Design of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope

    Bio:
    Michael Menzel has 39 years of experience in the aerospace, working 23 years in industry for commercial and defense missions and for NASA for the past 16 years. He is currently the Mission Systems Engineer for the James Webb Space Telescope. Mr. Menzel received a B.S. in Physics from the MIT in 1981 and an M.S. in Physics from Columbia University in 1986.

    Abstract:
    The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), on schedule to launch in 2021, will be NASA’s successor mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. JWST has been designed and developed to observe “first light” objects in the nascent universe, the evolution of galaxies over cosmic history, star birth within our own galaxy, planet formation and evolution both in our solar system and in solar systems around other stars and to make observations of the recently exoplanets. The JWST telescope will have an aperture greater than 6 meters in diameter, and along with its compliment of science instruments must be cooled to cryogenic temperatures below 50K. It will be operated at the Sun-Earth L2 point to keep thermal sources such as the Sun and Earth in the same general direction so that their radiation can be shielded by a “tennis court sized” sunshield, allowing the payload to attain these temperatures passively. This presentation will give an overview of the JWST science and systems design from the perspective of the NASA Mission Systems Engineer. The presentation will describe some of the key engineering challenges the Project has addressed to produce this “first of its kind” mission.

    Photographer: Michael McClare
    The James Webb Space Telescope is the largest, most powerful and most technologically challenging space telescope ever built. The Webb Telescope is so large; it must be folded like origami to fit inside its rocket fairing for the ride into space. Once in space, unfolding and readying Webb for science is a complex process that will take about six months. Webb is designed to see the most distant galaxies in the Universe and study how galaxies evolved over cosmic time. Webb will study planets orbiting other stars looking for the chemical signatures of the building blocks of life. Webb will also study planets within our own solar system. The Webb Telescope Mission is an international space telescope program led by NASA with its partners, the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency. This video won third-place honors for Videographer of the Year 2019 in the Production category for Michael McClare.
