Soon you will be able to see the first images of the James Webb Space Telescope!

The James Webb Space Telescope, a partnership between NASA, ESA and CSA, will release its first color images and spectroscopic data on July 12, 2022.

As the largest and most complex observatory ever launched into space, Webb has undergone a six-month preparation period before it can begin its scientific work, calibrating its instruments to the space environment and aligning its mirrors.
