NASA has just launched the all-new replacement of the Hubble Space Telescope with the brand new James Webb Telescope that contains the cutting edge of space technology and serves to give us never before seen insight into the oldest lightwaves in the universe, collect data on nearby potentially habitable planets and so much more!

The size of the huge sun shield spans 69.5 x 46.5 feet and will orbit at a distance of around 1 million miles away from the Earth for its lifespan of around 5 - 10 years whilst operating at an average temperature of around -370 degrees Fahrenheit or - 223.3 degrees Celsius. The entire James Webb Space Telescope cost around $10 billion to make, but the data and knowledge it will supply humankind with is absolutely priceless.
