Hardware progressing:Mirror in final stages of testing


Hardware progressing sunshield full scale membrane

The James Webb Space Telescope

Hardware progressing: Sunshield full-scale membrane

The JWST sunshield - full scale membrane

Log scale: 2.0” x 2.0”

Jwst planets to cosmology

JWST will see the very first galaxies

Hubble UDF

Simulated JWST


Jwst planets to cosmology

Razor sharp vision of early universe

1’x1’ region in the UDF – 3.5 to 5.8 μm

Implications for: Pop III star clusters?, reionization, cosmic star formation history, structure formation, galaxy evolution

Spitzer, 90,000s per band(GOODS collaboration)

JWST, 1000s per band(simulated)


Jwst planets to cosmology

The James Webb Space Telescope

Extrasolar planets:habitable zone

JWST will see planets around other stars
