Reimagining the Big Bang with James Webb Space Telescope

Launched on 25th December 2021, the James Webb Space Telescope is the pinnacle of Space Tech in the entire scientific community of this decade. Especially, in understanding the universe right from its origin. JWST is deemed to be the successor of Hubble but with a new set of eyes.

Unlike Hubble, which over the years has given us tremendous amounts of data and images of what lies far and beyond of our cosmic background, JWST probes deeper and farther. Hubble was built primarily around visible and ultraviolet light regions of the electromagnetic spectrum with some capabilities in the near-infrared, whereas James Webb Space Telescope operates strictly in the infrared region. Moreover, Hubble has a mirror diameter of 2.4 meters whereas JWST features a larger diameter of 6.4 meters.
