NASAs New Telescope Launched Into Space

Nasa’s James Webb Space Telescope was launched into the space on Saturday from South America’s northeastern coast.

According to a foreign media outlet, this is a revolutionary instrument built to see the farthest. It will open a new era into astronomical exploration.

The cost of the telescope is $9 billion.  It was carried aloft inside the cargo bay of an Ariane 5 rocket that blasted off at about from the European Space Agency’s (ESA).

The countdown was carried live on a joint Nasa-ESA webcast.

The 14,000-pound telescope will be released from the French-built rocket after a 26-minute ride into space.

It will gradually unfurl to nearly the size of a tennis court over the next 13 days as it sails onward.
