The James Webb Space Telescope has been successfully decoupled from its Ariane 5 launcher in space. The most powerful telescope in the world is to explore the early days of the universe.

The “James Webb” space telescope has successfully launched. An Ariane 5 rocket lifted off from the spaceport in Kourou in French Guiana at 1:20 p.m. Central European Time and dropped the telescope a little later.

The new telescope far exceeds its predecessor “Hubble” in size and complexity. Its mirror is six and a half meters in diameter and had to be folded in order to even fit into the Ariane 5 rocket.

The start was postponed several times

The launch of the rocket now also had to be postponed several times. The first delay was attributed to an accident during launch preparations in late November and the second to a communication problem.

The telescope is named after James Webb, who headed Nasa in the 1960s.
