Join Webb on a journey of discovery

We wonder. It’s our nature. How did we get here? Are we alone in the universe? How does the universe work?
The James Webb Space Telescope is NASA’s ambitious scientific endeavor to answer these questions, in partnership with the European and Canadian space agencies. Webb will build on the legacy of previous space-based telescopes to push the boundaries of human knowledge even further, to the formation of the first galaxies and the horizons of other worlds.
