New telescope "James Webb" to be launched into space on December 18
The launch was originally scheduled for October 2018. With the telescope, in whose development Austrian scientists were also involved and in which hardware from Austria has been installed, researchers want to learn more about the early universe. They hope to look back into the universe shortly after the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago. "James Webb" follows the "Hubble" telescope, which has been in use for more than 30 years.
