Spaceflight of world’s largest telescope
The James Webb Space Telescope made history through space travel with the aim of capturing images of any nearby stars and galaxies radiating light into the universe. It is by far the largest space telescope in the world. The telescope was launched from French Guiana in South America on a European Aryan rocket. The historic expedition started at 6:20 pm on Saturday, Bangladesh time.
The design and construction of the James Webb Space Telescope took almost 30 years, according to a BBC report yesterday. It is being touted as the greatest scientific endeavor of the 21st century.
The report further states that the James Webb Space Telescope can be used to observe the atmosphere of distant stars. This telescope will also help to understand whether a planet is habitable or not.
The James Webb Space Telescope cost at least one thousand crore dollars. The telescope also has the ability to search the atmosphere and weather of distant planets. The telescope is named after an architect of the Apollo spacecraft that landed on the moon. It is the successor to the Hubble Telescope.
Engineers from the United States, Europe, and Canada have worked together to build the telescope. It will be a hundred times more powerful than any previous telescope.
Scientists have been waiting a long time for the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope. There were also concerns about this. The web is an extraordinary mission, said Neil Nelson, head of the US space agency NASA. It is a shining example of what we can achieve when we dream big. We always knew that the project would be a risky endeavor. But of course, when you want a big reward, you have to take a big risk.
The James Webb Space Telescope has a six-and-a-half meter wide golden mirror. It is three times wider than the Hubble Telescope. In addition, the enhanced optics are connected to four ultra-sensitive instruments, which will enable astronomers to see deeper into space.
One of the main goals of the telescope is to search for information about the original star, which formed 13 and a half billion years ago, right after the Big Bang. The first heavy atoms needed for life are formed from the nuclear reaction of these objects. As such, they are responsible for the production of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur.
