Golden Eye on the Cosmos - James Webb Space Telescope


The James Webb Space Telescope (Webb) is the planned next generation orbiting observatory with an approximately 6.5-metre primary mirror. With a broad infrared coverage and vastly improved sensitivity, Webb will study every phase in the history of the Universe, from the first stars and galaxies to the formation of planetary systems capable of supporting life, to the Solar System's evolution.

This special exhibition introduces the use of the telescope as a tool of astronomy, Webb's innovative technologies and its science goals. The exhibition features an animatronic model of the Webb telescope, supplemented by exhibits that explain the science behind infrared astronomy.
