NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine recently sat down with Nobel Prize winner John Mather and the agency’s Associate Administrator for Science, Thomas Zurbuchen for a conversation about NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. They talked about the challenges of building the world’s premier space telescope and why it’s all worth it. Webb is the first telescope of its kind, an unprecedented feat of engineering, and is at the very leading edge of technological innovation and development. Webb will find the first galaxies that formed in the early universe and peer through dusty clouds to see stars forming planetary systems.
