James Webb Space Telescope Ashlyn Sonnier

NASA is working on the Space Telescope

The project is located at one of the NASA space centers.

The James Webb Space Telescope will show us the best view of the cosmos ever recorded. It will feature a 18-four-feet-wide, gold-coated beryllium and an enormous sun shield that will keep the apparatus from overheating. It's a delicate construction that NASA has been working on for years. Once completed and launched, it will provide stunning images of distant stars that will teach us about the history of the universe, all the way back to the Big Bang.

The project will be finished in October 2018

The Telescope is the size of a tennis court. It will give us insight on how the solar system formed, and the formation of other systems that could support Earth-like planets.
