James Webb Space Telescope: Hubble’s Cosmic Successor

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JSWT) is scheduled to launch on Dec 24, 2021, from ESA’s launch site at Kourou in French Guiana on board an Arianespace Ariane 5 rocket. 

The $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope — NASA’s largest and most powerful space science telescope — will probe the cosmos to uncover the history of the universe from the Big Bang to alien planet formation and beyond.
