NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) was launched at 5:50 pm IST on December 25.

Webb, NASA’s largest space science telescope ever constructed, will be the successor of the Hubble Space Telescope. Webb will “hunt for the unobserved formation of the first galaxies, as well as to look inside dust clouds where stars and planetary systems are forming today,” according to NASA.
