How NASA’s Webb Telescope Will Transform Our Place in the Universe

  • Am Vor Monat

    Quanta MagazineQuanta Magazine

    NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is the most powerful telescope in the history of humanity, and one of the most ambitious engineering projects ever attempted. It will witness the birth of stars and galaxies at the edge of time and probe alien skies for signs of life. In this new documentary from Quanta, JWST’s lead scientists and engineers discuss what inspired the telescope, how it was built, the extraordinary challenges it will face upon launch, and its potential discoveries.

I like to think that the smallest "things" we can see under microscopes that blip in and out of existence, are universes themselves. And, our own universe and its entire quadrillion+ year existence, appears to decay in an instant relative to whichever sentient being is studying it. While a Googol of different universes make up matter in their own perception of reality.

This is a chance at being part of the initial discovery of life outside of earths boundaries! Never in my life as a child did I see this opportunity coming but now within 5 years we may find something! I am humbled by this, my curiosity about life outside of earth was sparked by my father who is thankfully still alive himself to see this marvel do it’s job! I know it’s primary job isn’t to find life but this would be an almost automatic function secondary to it’s main task.

To learn from our mistakes and be better, work together and help one another to lead a life of prosper and advancement where there is no war, no hatred, no discrimination, no hunger. Where there are brothers and sisters, families and friends all helping one another to lead a good life. All for another to lay on the grass looking up and wonder what lies ahead, far and beyond, curious for more, eager for more. I hope.

I think the launch of Webb is amazing and I can't wait to see what images and data come back. But I find it strange that at 11:05 (actually just after) the woman speaking talks about how our geology releases certain gases into the atmosphere. It is worth noting that the subtitles indicate methane and carbon dioxide but the the audio only says methane. Was the audio altered to remove the mention of the natural release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere?? I hate the thought that this video was manipulated to pander to certain political views (climate change). If this is really about science, why does this contradiction exist? It only degrades the importance of this historic moment. In the spirit of science, let us stick to the true facts. Let these achievements be the guiding light in enlightenment by portraying facts; true, unadulterated facts.

@Eric Williams We have to learn Interstellar travel or sent object beyond the limits. I am talking about wormholes, which the only way we can reach the point out of our reach. But we still have much to learn from universe i guess.

As more problems mount, the feeling of Webb being awesome diminishes. Perhaps, it will work perfectly... The latest mars rovers blew lots of folks away! And NONE imagined they would land in such an exotict way, successfully. Now, JWST... Even if it blows up at launch, so much has been learned!!! If another one was started after the attempt of the first, we know EXACTLY how to make another, faster, probably better scope. Even if JWST is a complete bust, we sit in a more powerful position already!

We have learned so much from the Hubble telescope, and to think the new James Webb telescope is even more technologically advanced, makes me so excited to see its first images materialise !

@TheBaldr You obviously have no idea how a telescope works. Hubble was a 2.4 meter mirror. The JWST has a 16.5 meter mirror. That ALONE (along with it's location at L2) will increase what it can see by 100 TIMES over Hubble! It will also operate in the IR wavelengths. Webb will be able to see the first galaxies not the "toddler" ones that Hubble can only see. You need to do some BASIC research before posting and embarrassing yourself like that.

Just imagine what would be the meaning of NOT discovering any life signature even with the JWT. It would be simply absurd. That's why i bet that we will. 💪👍

@Joker Jackpot You are asleep to all of the obfuscated photos that NASA has already been tampering with. They will stop at nothing. They are now dissolving all the Apollo mission photos of the moon's surface what shows the earth in the background. They then remove the originaals off of their websites and apply the even more tampered photos as the moon's surface is wiped clean. NASA continues to tamper with the Mars rover photos. they intentionally add an orange filter to them. they blur them. Sounds so exciting. Yeah.if you are aleep and delusional.

The infrared light is stepped like its digitized. This is an amazing discovery. Another discovery is that the universe filling up with more and more particles and is slowing the travel of light! If we could measure the refraction we could find out when light was traveling millions of times faster and what the real size of the universe is and how old it really is. Check out gsr updates. Setterfield has a video the plasma universe, also talks about a grand unified theory. He has a website with more independent peer reviewed papers.

After all of these delays, I'm hoping it actually does launch tomorrow morning. I'd be scared to launch it too. We all remember the "contact lense" we had to launch up to the guys to fix Hubble. That is not an option this time. Once it's up there, that's it.

To me there are just too many complex electromechanical steps that have to go perfectly with equipment that in some cases has been in storage for years. It won't really surprise me if this extremely complex machine never returns a single image.

These are exciting times we're living in and the launch of the jwst is going to give us answers about our universe, answers that only a short time ago were science fiction. The James Webb space telescope could unlock our universe, taking us in to the most significant time of all human civilisation and scientific discovery.
