The James Webb Space Telescope, JWST, is the largest and most sensitive telescope ever flown into space. With the sensitivity 100 times that of the Hubble Space Telescope, JWST will provide us with an unprecedented view of the Universe, allowing us to peer into the cosmos to observe the first galaxies that formed, looking back at almost the beginning of the universe; it will also search for signs of life on other planets and try to answer questions regarding dark energy and dark matter. With JWST now launched, join us to find out why, when, where and how about this amazing mission.
