The James Webb Space Telescope launched on Dec. 25 after nearly three decades of development. The roughly $10 billion telescope sent back its first images just a few days ago.

  • Dr. Christyl Johnson, deputy director for technology and research investments at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, said the James Webb Space Telescope, essentially the next generation of the Hubble telescope, will provide an opportunity to see further into the past than ever and possibly bring clarity to the Big Bang and formation of this galaxy.
  • Johnson said cryogenics and other advanced technologies have enabled the new telescope to produce more vivid, clear and detailed images.
  • She said the telescope is performing better than expected so far, with an “absolutely amazing” launch, and that the images put out so far are very preliminary.
