* More Delays for the James Webb Telescope

The long-awaited James Webb Space Telescope — successor to the Hubble Space Telescope — will now launch between March and June 2019.

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) promises revolution for astronomy. Its 18-segment, 6.5-meter mirror and infrared instruments will see the very first stars and galaxies forming in the universe, watch starbirth in nearby stellar nurseries, peer at exoplanet atmospheres, and directly image exoplanets themselves. The sensitive and sharp-eyed instruments will discern unprecedented detail in just about every aspect of astronomy.

The delay is due to delays in integration of various spacecraft elements, says Thomas Zurbuchen (NASA), associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. “The change in launch timing is not indicative of hardware or technical performance concerns.”
