Webb Space Telescope Resources

Webb Space TelescopeLater this decade, the long-awaited successor to the Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes will be deployed into space, the immense Webb Space Telescope. This infrared observatory will explore the deepest questions in astrophysics and cosmology, including the origin of stars and galaxies, and the potential habitability of extrasolar planets. You can learn more about the Webb at our website for public visitors and at NASA's Webb Telescope mission website. The resources that we are posting below can help you tell the Webb story to your audiences. There’s more to come!
