The NASA's effort to aim at a depth of outer space

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) not only reveal some new space mission in 2014. The U.S. space agency also announced that the James Webb Space Telescope has reached the final stages of review. Thus, the debut of this advanced telescope ever closer. The James Webb Space Telescope is said to be operational in 2018.

"All the designs have been completed for Webb and no great design is left to be done," said Richard Lynch, who responsible for NASA's Webb telescope, as quoted by Mashable, on Monday, January 27, 2014.

Reportedly, the Webb telescope can capture space objects very far away from Earth. The telescope will outperform the previous space telescope, the Hubble that ever orbits in 1990.
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), set to be launched by NASA in 2018, will be capable of detecting oxygen and water in the atmosphere of an Earth-like planet orbiting a white dwarf after only a few hours of observation time—much more easily than for an Earth-like planet orbiting a sun-like star.

NASA collaborated with the European Space Agency and the Canadian Space Agency to build the telescope. The international team believes using the Webb, the researchers were able to see some of the first stars and the particles are created in the universe.

The new telescope is believed to be able to see the future of the universe. Webb with infrared capability is expected to monitor the form of new stars and planets in the dust cloud space, where Hubble can not observe the object.

For future missions, NASA estimates that the use of the Webb telescope will cost U.S. $8,8 billion. This cost is more expensive than the use of the Hubble telescope with a total funding of U.S. $1.5 billion.. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MASHABLE | HUBBLE SCI]
