The James Webb Space Telescope, a new flagship in space observation, will be launched on December 18 from Kourou, Guyana. After a 29-day journey, it will reach Lagrange point L2, in the opposite direction to the Sun.

Saturday, December 25, 1:20 p.m. metro time, this is the expected time for the ignition of the Vulcain engine and the high-powered powder acceleration stages of theAriane 5 who will transport the télescope spatial James-Webb through theatmosphere. It is the largest space telescope ever designed. This technological feat will be thrown out of theorbit terrestrial to revolve around the Sun in order to observe theuniverse in L’infrared, ideal wavelength for observing cold objects in the universe such as exoplanets, and for seeing even further to the far reaches of the observable universe.
