5 Cosmic Revolutions James Webb Will Bring

The James Webb Telescope will be one of the hardest technical mission NASA will ever attempt. Despite the numerous delays, technical challenges, funding crisis and uncertainties the Mighty James Webb Telescope is almost ready to launch.

In this video Let's take a look at 5 major revolutions that the James Webb Telescope will bring.


1 - Understanding The ‘Dark Ages’ of the universe.

An important key to understanding the early events in the universe are the relics they left behind. 


2 - How Black holes were formed.

Nothing can escape a black hole, not even light, hence black holes are technically invisible. 


3 - Watch the birth of the first stars.

The initial stars should be made up entirely of hydrogen and helium, as they have been since the Big Bang.


4 - Detect possible chemical signatures of life on other planets.

A second very important role James Webb will play is studying atmospheres of exoplanets.


5 - Understanding the formation of galaxies in the early universe.

One of the big purposes of a telescope is to act as a time machine.
