What’s next for the James Webb Space Telescope?

Now that the world has gotten a glimpse of what the James Webb Space Telescope is truly capable of, astronomers around the world can anxiously await their opportunity to pore over the data gathered by the telescope.

The $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope (also known as Webb or JWST), which launched in December, is NASA’s largest and most capable space science telescope. The telescope contains four different instruments that can combine to collect data in 17 different modes. Using these sophisticated sensors, Webb will be able to peer at some of the first stars and galaxies ever to form in the universe, in addition to studying objects here in our own solar system.
