NASA's next space telescope is running out of time
from The Atlantic
The world's next great space telescope is falling behind. The James Webb Space Telescope, NASA's successor to the famed Hubble, is at risk of experiencing significant delays in development, according to a new report from a government agency that audits federal programs. Webb is an $8.8 billion project two decades in the making. Last September, NASA announced it was delaying the telescope's launch by at least five months, from October 2018 to between March and June 2019.
