James Webb telescope: What is its significance

The James Webb telescope is currently the most advanced space telescope humanity has built. It will succeed the Hubble telescope that has been discharging duties for past few decades.

“We've been waiting a long time for this,” said the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's planet hunter Sara Seager. “Webb will move our search for life forward, but to find signs of life we have to be incredibly lucky.”

With the James Webb telescope, scientists will now have higher magnification to look into deep space. This could help them unravel the mysteries of the universe. Hence, the launch of this space telescope is crucial and everything needs to go perfect. This is also the reason that NASA has been delaying the launch due to poor weather around the French Guiana spaceport.
