Named after the former NASA Administrator, The James Webb telescope according to many astrophysicists is a hundred times more powerful than the Hubble telescope. Unlike Hubble, the Webb is primarily an infrared telescope that will enable astronomers to not only look farther out in space but also back in time. 

The Webb is expected to bring a massive revolution in the field of astronomy and many have been regarding it as a machine for answering the unanswered questions about the universe we are a part of, with its majestic gold-hued mirrors Webb will provide mankind with a way to explore the seemingly unexplorable.
