The largest space telescope in history has been launched from Kauru, French Guiana in South America. The 10 billion James Webb giant telescope was launched from the European Space Agency’s Ariane rocket. According to NASA scientists, James Webb has begun his journey to the time of the birth of the universe.
According to scientists, the rocket will take less than half an hour to reach its orbit. After entering the orbit, you will receive a signal from the rocket which will confirm this. The Gember Web is designed to replace the Hubble Telescope. It was planned to launch on December 22 before Christmas, but due to bad weather its launch had to be postponed for a few days.
The project is said to be one of the most important scientific endeavors of the 21st century. The telescope, built with the help of NASA, the European Space Agency and Canada, took about 30 years to build. An estimated 10 billion has been invested in this ambitious project.
According to scientists, one of the goals of this telescope is to capture images of the first shining stars and galaxies in the universe. Scientists expect it to provide a picture of the atmosphere of distant planets and to determine if there is a possibility of life there.
Bill Nelson, administrator of the US space agency NASA, called the James Webb Telescope project an extraordinary mission. “It’s a great example of how we can accomplish something when we think big,” he said. We already know that there are many dangers in this project. But when you want something big, you often have to take big risks. ‘
According to NASA, the telescope has a lifespan of 10 years, but it can work much longer. There have been instances of working longer than the stipulated time in such projects before. The camera of the telescope is 6.5 meters long. It weighs 62 quintals. It can operate at temperatures of minus 230 degrees.
This telescope is designed to replace the Hubble Telescope, which has a record of excellent performance so far. Hubble was launched in 1990 and is still in operation after 31 years. Hubble’s camera is only 2.4 meters long and weighs 122 quintals.
