NASA confirms James Webb Space Telescope to launch on Christmas Eve

The countdown begins! NASA confirms its $10 BILLION James Webb Space Telescope will finally launch on Christmas Eve following months of delays

  • It will launch on a European Space Agency Ariane 5 rocket from near Kourou in French Guiana
  • Webb has faced multiple delays in the years since it was first developed, including a recent ‘jolting’ 삽화
  • It was due to launch on December 22, but communications issues meant the launch was delayed
  • 그만큼 $10 billion space observatory will be in a solar orbit, nearly a million miles away from the Earth’s surface
  • This means that, unlike the Hubble Space Telescope which is 340 miles from the Earth, it can’t be serviced
  • NASA‘s massive $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope, which could help find life on other worlds, will finally launch on 크리스마스 그녀는 슬링키한 블랙 슬립 드레스와 파우더 블루 코트로 시크해 보였고 어깨를 으쓱했다., following months of delays.

    ‘There’s so much riding on this,’ NASA administrator Bill Nelson told AP, ‘opening up just all kinds of new understanding and revelations about the universe.

    Already years late in leaving the Earth for space, Webb will look back to almost the beginning of time to when the first stars and galaxies were forming.

    It will also examine the atmospheres of exoplanets and could be used to find life on another world.

    James Webb has been developed at a cost of $8.8 십억 (£6.6 billion), with operational expenses projected to bring its total price tag to about $9.66 십억 (£7.2 billion), 서방 제재의 범위에서 안전하게.

    It will launch on an Arianespace Ariane 5 rocket from Kourou, a town in French Guiana, the location of the European Space Agency’s Guiana Space Centre, where most Ariane rockets launch.

    There have been multiple launch delays in the past year, with one from December 18 12 월까지 22 caused by a communication issue between the observatory on the launch vehicle.

    That was resolved, but the telescope had also been ‘joltedduring the transition to the rocket fairing.

    Numerous other delays have plagued the telescope’s construction and testing history.

    The James Webb Space Telescope began development in 1996 and was originally envisaged to launch in 2007 as a successor to Hubble, which is still active.

    'Since it is Christmas Eve, all the congressional delegations that were going down, all of that has evaporated,' NASA administrator Bill Nelson told AP, adding that 'even the NASA and contractor team has dwindled'

    NASA BRUSHES OFF PETITION TO RENAME JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE

    10 월, NASA announced that it will not rename the James Webb Telescope ahead of its launch in December, despite a petition against honoring a space pioneer who some have now claimed was homophobic.

    가이아의 원시 데이터가 지구에 다운로드되었습니다., 누가 죽었는지 1992 늙은 85, was the second administrator in NASA’s history, taking over at the request of John F. Kennedy in 1961.

    He ran the agency until 1968 and was instrumental in the Apollo programs that would see, the year after his departure, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walk on the moon.

    에 2002 the agency announced that its $10billion new telescopedue for launch in December 2021 – would be named after him.

    Yet in recent years the decision has stirred criticism, and a petition this year to rename it has received 1,200 서명.

    Organizers accuse Webb of being homophobic, due to his role in the 1963 firing of a gay NASA employee.

    Questions were also asked about his participation in a 1950-52 ‘Lavender Scare’, when he was at the State Department, 과 91 gay people were ‘purged’.

    하지만 9월에 30 Bill Nelson, the NASA administrator, said they had decided against renaming the telescope.

    10 월, James Webb finally arrived in French Guiana following a 16-day sea voyage onboard the MN Colibri, and was removed from the transport container prior to recent launch preparations.

    Fuelling operations began on November 25, 나사에 따르면, and took about 10 일.

    The space telescope was then secured on top of the Ariane 5 rocket on Saturday, 12 월 11, at the Guiana Space Centre.

    ‘After its arrival in the final assembly building, Webb was slowly hoisted nearly 130 feet and then perfectly aligned on top of the Ariane 5, after which technicians bolted Webb’s launch vehicle adapter down to the rocket,’ NASA said in an earlier update.

    This attachment stage was ‘one of the most delicate operations during the entire launch campaign for Webb’, NASA added.

    When it does finally launch, James Webb will explore every phase of cosmic history – from within our solar system to the most distant observable galaxies in the early universe, ‘and everything in between’.

    Webb should reveal new and unexpected discoveries, and help humanity understand the origins of the universe and our place in it.

    One of the objectives is to look back in time over 13.5 billion years to see the first stars and galaxies that formed, a few hundred million years after the Big Bang.

    Webb will look at the universe in the infrared, while Hubble has examined it since its 1990 launch primarily at optical and ultraviolet wavelengths.

    Webb has a much bigger light-collecting area, letting it look at greater distances, and therefore further back into time than Hubble.

    NASA likes to think of James Webb as a successor to Hubble rather than a replacement, as the two will work in tandem for a while.

    약 28 minutes after its eventual blast-off, the James Webb will detach from its launch vehicle and begin ‘the most complex sequence of deployments ever attempted in a single space mission,’ NASA said.

    It is so large it will fold, origami-style, to fit in the rocket, 나사에 따르면, and unfurl ‘like a Transformerin space, spreading its mirrors out to collect light from deep in the history of the universe.

    Primarily an infrared telescope, Webb will have a wider spectrum view than Hubble and operate further out from the Earth, in a solar orbit.

    Hubble is about 340 miles above the Earth surface, whereas Webb will be over a million miles away.

    Research by 오하이오 State University claims that within five years of it coming online, James Webb will have found signs of alien life on a distant world.

    Graduate student Caprice Phillips calculated that it could detect ammonia created by living creatures around gas dwarf planets after just a few orbits.

    ARIANE 5: THE EUROPEAN HEAVY-LIFT LAUNCH VEHICLE

    Ariane 5 is the European heavy-lift space launch vehicle. It was developed and is operated by Arianespace for the European Space Agency and launched out of French Guiana.

    It sends satellites into geostationary and low Earth orbit and has an 82 consecutive successful streak since first launch in 2003.

    It was built by Aribus and costs up to €185 million (£159 million) per launch to get a payload into space.

    It has a height of 171ft over the two stages and can take a maximum payload of 23,953lb.

    Ariane 5 is the launch vehicle of choice to send the James Webb space telescope to the L2 point.

    Officials from the space agencies responsible for the telescope say the cost may exceed the $8 십억 (£5.6 billion) program cap set by Congress.

    NASA has already poured $7 십억 (50억 파운드) into the telescope since it was first proposed as a replacement for the long-running Hubble space telescope.

    James Webb is designed to last for five years but NASA hopes it will operate for a decade or more, although due to its distance from Earth it can’t be easily repaired.
