Webb, the next ESA mission

The James Webb Space Telescope (Webb) is the next great space science observatory following Hubble, designed to answer outstanding questions about the Universe and to make breakthrough discoveries in all fields of astronomy. Webb will see farther into our origins: from the formation of stars and planets, to the birth of the first galaxies in the early Universe. Webb is an international partnership between NASA, ESA and CSA. The telescope will launch on an Ariane 5 from Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana in December 2021.

Over the last few months, ESA has produced a wide range of resources that can be used by museums and science centres in supporting their activities to discover, promote and organise events on Webb, including:

A set of 11 images giving an overview of the James Webb Space Telescope for projection or print. To download and print the panels, click on each image separately to open a new window and choose the PDF version.
