Often shortened to JWST, the James Webb Space Telescope, launched into space in 2022 with the intention of exploring deep space and telling us more about how the universe began.
The JWST is far more powerful than the Hubble telescope and so is able to take much higher definition images and capture much richer images of the telescope.
