Countdown to Launch

Olivia Jones

2021 is an exciting year for astronomy, with the launch of the highly anticipated James Webb Space Telescope (Webb). Webb, NASA’s and ESA’s flagship mission, will revolutionise astronomy. It will be the largest and most powerful telescope launched into space, and it has strong Scottish connections with one of the key instruments built here at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh.   Here I will talk about the engineering of Webb and its key science objectives as we look forward to significant astronomy discoveries when it is launched.
