The James Webb Telescope will already exceed its planned life - Belgium

The James Webb Telescope will already exceed its planned life – Belgium

(Belgium) was not calmed down after celebrating the long-awaited successful launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) when NASA actually released a new message yesterday evening (Belgium time).

The American-European-Canadian spectator took off on Saturday from the European launch pad Ariane-5. According to NASA, the accuracy of this launch and the two path corrections left so much fuel that “the telescope will have much more than a 10-year life cycle.” The baseline expectation was five years. As an ambitious successor to the legendary Hubble Space Telescope (HST), JWST will be able to look back in the infrared 200 million years after the Big Bang. Now we have to wait for the 6.5-meter mirror and the tennis-court-sized sunshade to unfold. (Belgium)
