Webb Space Telescope Roll Out to Launch Pad

Arianespace’s Ariane 5 rocket with NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope onboard, is seen in the last assembly structure ahead of the organized roll to the launch pad, Thursday, December 23, 2021, at Europe’s Spaceport, the Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana. The James Webb Space Telescope (often called JWST or Webb) is a big infrared telescope with a 21.3 foot (6.5 meter) main mirror. The observatory will study every stage of cosmic history– from within our planetary system to the most far-off observable galaxies in the early universe. Credit: NASA/Bill Ingalls
