It’s an infrared telescope with a major mirror of 6.5 metre. The method of growing the Webb Telescope was supervised by NASA’s Goddard House Flight Centre.

Northrop Grumman, the place the practical assessments have been carried out, is the business companion on the telescope undertaking. The operation of the James Webb will likely be completed by the House Telescope Science Institute.

The telescope is a successor of NASA’s Hubble Telescope and goes to enhance and lengthen its discoveries.

The JWST is slated for launch from French Guiana on an Ariane 5 rocket on 31 October 2021. The telescope would be the premier observatory of the approaching decade.
