James Webb Space Telescope
By Caden Leonard
The James Webb Space Telescope is going to be the largest telescope to launch into space!
It's job will be to collect information far into outer space and view the earliest galaxies know to us!
The James Webb Space Telescope project was started in 2013.
The telescope was built in NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.
It is made of a light weight metal called beryllium and in total the whole telescope will be the size of a Boeing 737 airplane.
The James Webb has cost around 10 billion dollars to create.
The reflecting panels will span 24 feet across and are coated with a golf ball sized amount of pure gold!
The telescope has been completed and is going to be launched on December 22, 2021.
It will launch from the Ariane 5 rocket provided by the European Space Agency, launching from French Guiana.
