NASA has recently shared news of the costliest and the most powerful telescope reaching its final spot.
The telescope has finally reached its destination located between the sun and the Earth – which is 15,00,000 km from Earth.
Nasa ambassador Bill Nelson said “ “We’re one step closer to uncovering the mysteries of the universe. And I can’t wait to see Webb’s first new views of the universe this summer!
Bill Nelson also congratulated the team and tweeted
Scientists will be now able to look at a wide view of the cosmos and they might witness stars and galaxies forming by peering back 14 billion years ago. Web Project manager at NASA’ Goddard space flight centre Bill Ochs credited the success of the project to everyone associated with the project.
Bill Ochs sharing the further steps said “We are now on the verge of aligning mirrors, instrument activation and commissioning, and the start of wondrous and astounding discoveries.”
The seven-ton spacecraft is now finally one million miles away from Earth and will now orbit around the sun. It is considered the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, which is only 330 miles far from our planet
