The most powerful telescope ever to be launched Christmas Eve

The James Webb telescope is waiting to be launched from French Guiana to be the most powerful telescope ever built.

For decades, the hubble space telescope was the most powerful telescope producing thousands of brilliant images, but it will be overthrown by the James Webb telescope.

The James Webb telescope will be able to produce images up to 100 times further than the hubble space telescope.

Unlike Hubble which is very close to earth, The James Webb telescope will orbit 1.5 million kilometers from earth, multiple times further than the moon.

If all goes to plan we will be able to see how the universe began, and detect heat from objects which the human eye cannot see.
