Unlocking the Universe

Unlocking the Universe

The Cosmic Discoveries of the Webb Space Telescope

Coming October 8, 2024. Pre-order today!

By: Suzanne Slade

“The promise of Webb is not what we know we will discover; it’s what we don’t yet understand or can’t yet fathom about our universe.”
—NASA administator Bill Nelson

Building the James Webb Space Telescope was no easy feat. It started with a big dream and an even bigger team: thousands of engineers and scientists across the country and world. The team solved design challenges, built prototypes, and ran test after test. They experienced frustration, page-turning suspense, and, ultimately, triumph. After decades of work, a rocket catapulted the Webb Telescope into space. With Webb, we can now see farther than we've ever seen before.

The first Webb images, released on July 11, 2022, captivated the world. Today the Webb team continues releasing new images and making astonishing discoveries. This is their story, as told by a mechanical engineer and reviewed for accuracy by key members of the Webb team.
