We were impressed by the high quality of the proposals received," said Ken Sembach, Director of the Space Telescope
Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland, in the release.
From the very first galaxies after the Big Bang, to searching for chemical fingerprints of life on Enceladus, Europa, and exoplanets like TRAPPIST-1e, Webb will be looking at some incredible things in our universe, said Eric Smith, James Webb Space Telescope
Director at NASA Headquarters in Washington.
Beginning with a brief biography of the telescope's namesake, Nasa Hubble Space Telescope
Owner's Workshop Manual takes you from the telescope's design and development, through its launch and deployment, to its successor: the James Webb Space Telescope
The James Webb Space Telescope
(JWST), previously known as Next Generation Space Telescope
(NGST), is a planned space telescope
optimized for observations in the infrared, and a scientific successor to the Hubble Space Telescope
and the Spitzer Space Telescope
includes an introduction to telescopes and four matching games where you can compare simple telescopes to both Webb and the Hubble Space Telescope
Williams spoke about the way space telescopes
like the Hubble Space Telescope
have changed astronomy in a lecture titled "The New Universe: Revelations from Space Telescopes
Optical, Infrared, and Millimeter Space Telescopes
(2004: Scotland, United Kingdom).
Images from the Spitzer Space Telescope
show lots of tiny specks of dust between the comet chunks.
Nasa has made the decision to cancel the fifth and final visit of the space shuttle to service the Hubble Space Telescope
The Hubble Space Telescope
will be retired in 2010, after 20 years of service.
That means at its apogee (furthest point from Earth), Chandra will soar 200 times higher than the visible light-gathering Hubble Space Telescope
