The replacement for the Hubble Space Telescope is getting closer to completion, as a very important component has been installed. The massive 6.5 metre diameter mirror of the James Webb Space Telescope has been finished, and this will make it the largest space telescope ever. Take a look at NASA’s video.
The thing that excites me about this telescope is that it’ll see things in unprecedented detail, including the ability to directly image exoplanets. It’s going to be so much better than Hubble.
It is expected to launch in October 2018.
Are you looking forward to what this telescope will discover and see? Let me know in the comments below.
