How will the James Webb Space Telescope differ from the Hubble Space Telescope, and what new capabilities will it provide?

  • The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will differ from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in several ways. For one, the JWST will be able to observe in the infrared range, allowing it to see through dust clouds that the HST cannot. Additionally, the JWST will have a much larger primary mirror than the HST, which will allow it to collect more light and observe fainter objects. Finally, the JWST will be positioned much farther from Earth than the HST, allowing it to have a clearer view of the universe. Overall, these differences will provide the JWST with new capabilities, such as the ability to study the formation of stars and galaxies, the search for habitable exoplanets, and the study of the early universe.
