The world’s largest and most powerful space telescope set off on its mission on Saturday. You will explore the universe to find stars and early galaxies, as well as look for signs of life. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope lifted off from the French Guiana Space Center in South America on Christmas morning aboard the European Ariane rocket. Built at a cost of around $ 10 billion, this observatory will travel 1.6 million kilometers, or four times as long as the Moon, to reach its location.

It will take a month to get there, and then in the next five months, your infrared eyes will be ready to begin exploring the universe. “It will give us a better understanding of our universe and our place in it, who we are, what we are,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said earlier this week. However, he also warned: “When you want a great reward, you usually have a great risk in front of you.”

As the successor to the old Hubble space telescope, the old James Webb telescope is named after James Webb, a NASA administrator in the 1960s. NASA partnered with European and Canadian space agencies to build and project this new seven-inch telescope. tons, which has been working with thousands of people in 29 countries since the 1990s. Astronomers around the world were eagerly awaiting the projection of this telescope. A last-minute technical glitch plagued the launch for nearly a week, and then strong winds pushed it into Christmas.

The people in the control room were wearing Santa hats. The launch of the telescope was followed by applause from the center and enthusiastic scientists hugging. They yelled the telescope’s name, “Go Webb (Go Webb).” Stephen Israel, Arianespace CEO, said after the launch: “We did the screening for humanity this morning.” The telescope is equipped with various instruments, and a gold-plated mirror is also installed.
