NASA's long-awaited major observatory - the James Webb Space Telescope - is slated for take-off after October this year, as the space agency continues its talks with the European Space Agency (ESA) to set a final launch date. Is. This follows their initial announcement in July last year that the Webb telescope was slated for take-off on Halloween on October 31, 2021. According to NASA, the launch of the Webb telescope is being tentatively planned "about four months after the first. The Ariane 5" launch is scheduled for late July. Ariane 5 is the rocket on which the Webb telescope will be launched .
To ensure a safe take-off for the telescope, two Ariane 5 launches are scheduled before the telescope's final launch from the spaceport in French Guiana. In August, the Webb telescope will be shipped to the launch site, after which at least two months will be set aside for launch processing.
according to a NASA statement, the observatory has completed all post-environmental test deployments, and is in its final integration and folding stages. The mission remains "on time for a launch preparation date no earlier than October 31, 2021."
NS James Webb Space Telescope It is attracting a lot of attention among space enthusiasts, who are in deep anticipation of the study and the findings that this telescope will feature. Work on this telescope began in 1997 for a launch that was expected to take place in 2007. However, extensive testing and technical glitches have delayed the launch by more than a decade, leaving the space community in deep anticipation for its take-off. Year.
According to NASAIt is the "largest space telescope ever built".

The excitement around the web is not without reason. According to NASA's own words, the James Webb Telescope will study the origins of our universe, and help scientists unravel the mystery behind the formation of solar systems, including our own.
Webb, with its longer wavelength coverage and increased sensitivity, will help the Hubble Space Telescope get a closer look at the "beginning of time," helping scientists study the formation of galaxies for the first time. It will also help scientists see clouds of dust to study the luminous and cosmic bodies that are being born today.
