Description

With a mirror three times the size of the Hubble Space Telescope’s, and an orbit far beyond Earth’s Moon, the Webb Space Telescope is preparing to show us a universe we’ve never seen before. Webb will see the first stars flickering to life in the most distant universe, penetrate clouds of dust to reveal newly forming stars and solar systems, and analyze planets around other suns for traces of potentially life-giving water.
 
This highly interactive eBook features video, image galleries and more to tell the story of the Webb Telescope – the science it will reveal and the cutting-edge technology designed to not just cope with the harsh conditions of space, make them into an advantage.
