0 Written by: | Wednesday, Oct 19, 2011 12:00am

Some facts:

  • The James Webb Space Telescope will be launched into space.
  • The James Webb Space Telescope will make the Hubble Telescope feel puny and washed-up and fundamentally inadequate.
  • The James Webb Space Telescope will be the largest space telescope ever built.
  • The James Webb Space Telescope is on a deep-space mission. And that deep-space mission involves “look[ing] back in time more than 13 billion years to help us understand the formation of galaxies, stars and planets.”
  • The James Webb Space telescope is currently in construction, but you can see a life-size model at the Maryland Science Center through October 26. Experts will be standing around, happy to answer all your deep-space questions. For free!
