James Webb Space Telescope
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is a space telescope designed primarily to conduct infrared astronomy. This is expected to enable observations of the first stars and the formation of the first galaxies, and detailed atmospheric characterization of potentially habitable exoplanets.
