The BBC’s science editor Rebecca Morelle on how the observatory hopes to capture the history of our Universe.
The $10bn James Webb telescope has left Earth on its mission to show the first stars to light up the Universe.
The observatory was lifted skyward by an Ariane rocket from the Kourou spaceport in French Guiana.
Its flight to orbit lasted just under half an hour, with a signal confirming a successful outcome picked up by a ground antenna at Malindi in Kenya.
Webb, named after one of the architects of the Apollo Moon landings, is the successor to the Hubble telescope.
Engineers working with the US, European and Canadian space agencies have built the new observatory to be 100 times more powerful, however.

This telescope will allow us to see back in time? telescope is supposed to look far ahead distant but how look back in time?
10 billion and you've never #heard of it, fuck me we all living on the breadline for this shite ??
I can't wait to meet my fellow scientists and chart about how James web will discover life that exist in the other worlds!!!
Thanks for developing a new technology.

Nice CGI click bate. Wiki leaks moon outtakes on Bitchute will show you this is all fake to take your money. All computer generated like they did back then.
The universe is 13.5 billion years old. How can we see over 30 billion? Am I missing something? Lol

I have a question, will the Hubble telescope be used to see the movement of the james webb telescope?
$10 billion White folks traveling through space looking for a white face.
Our third eye can see beyond what those telescopes can see!

Waste of money
I just wish to say something here.
I watched the launch of JWST live on NASA's YouTube channel.
I've been waiting for that launch and deployment for a long time, ever since I've first heard of this project back in the late 90's…
This year, I've spent Christmas alone.. but I didn't regret it.
I did not, because I know, I watched one of the greatest moments in Human History unfolding in front of my eyes.
It felt like a Christmas present.
It was a perfect launch and what a view it was when the first sunshield unfolded and the first rays of the Sun covered the the spacecraft in a glory of light..!
And then I saw something, I still can't believe…
Sure, it wasn't the first time…
But this time, it was different.
First, I saw only one appear in the far distance…
Then came a whole swarm of it.
No, it wasn't ice.
I've seen hundreds of launches in my life, most of them live.
I know, how ice can be built up on spacecrafts and rockets and what happens at separation, how those ice particles move and at what possible trajectories they follow.
What I've seen now, was something totally different.
No, not satellites.
Satellites have fixed orbit, occasionally adjusted to avoid collisions with other space objects. Their speed is fixed and constant, so is their orbital track…
What we've seen here, are not from this Earth.
A launch like this had attracted the interest of many.
Not only us, Humans.
Soon, the Time is here, when all shall be Revealed.
OMG ! !! ! that is cool I want to learn more about telscope
eu is an organization ran by scoundrels. without the uk, esa will be close to insignificant. australia, uk, and america doesn't need these freeloading leeches
This Webb Telescope Is Outstanding, Utterly Beyond Your Scope Of Thought, It Will See Way Back In Time, Which Is Truly Amazing…🤔
Untill the end you didn't say how will it work
There is so many Mysteries out there waiting to be solve let's see if it will outperform its predecessor
I don't care how its gonna work and how it'll deploy and crap, just show me what it captured something useful apart from stones and sand. Or saying you found another galaxy which is 3 trillion light years away. Shut the crap and do something useful.
Fact. Moonlight makes surfaces cold
Fact. You can't have air pressure without out a barrier.
Fact. You can't have a area of pressure exist next to a vacuum
I like rockets, buuut they look a bit sus
