An imaginary image of what the James Webb Telescope will look like after being deployed to space

The James Webb Telescope is due to be published on December 18, and it’s hard to describe the excitement and anticipation of its discoveries.

A ‘super telescope’ is designed to enable scientists to see remote regions of the universe and see things from the past, far beyond what is available now.

It is hoped that the James Webb Telescope will be able to detect the light from the first stars that shined in the universe 13.5 billion years ago.

says Dr. Amber Nicole Stron, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center who is also the project’s deputy chief scientist: “The most exciting thing about this huge, ambitious and daring telescope is the idea that there are questions we didn’t even think to ask. “.
