Title: Guide To Space – The History And Future Of The James Webb Space Telescope
Organization: Universe Today
On March 30, 2021, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will blast off from the European Space Agency’s European spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana on board an Ariane 5 rocket. (OK, maybe that didn’t work out quite right… – Your Editor)
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.
