The James Webb Space Telescope’s cryogenic vacuum testing at our Johnson Space Center verified it’s ready for the cold, harsh environment of space, and its mission to uncover a part of the universe we have not seen. From distant worlds orbiting other stars, to mysterious cosmic structures, Webb could help answer questions about our universe and our place in it. Launch of Webb is set for 2019.

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope is a civilization scale mission, set to look back to the first galaxies formed after the Big Bang and help answer the question “are we alone in the universe?” After passing a key test at Johnson Space Center designed to simulate the cold vacuum of space, Webb is ready for the next step ahead of a launch in 2019.

Astronaut John Young, who walked on the Moon during Apollo 16 and commanded the first space shuttle mission, has passed away at the age of 87.
He is the only person to go into space as part of the Gemini, Apollo and space shuttle programs and was the first to fly into space six times -- or seven times, when counting his liftoff from the Moon during Apollo 16. 04.01.2018, в 21:17
This 24-hour infrared loop from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) GOES-16 satellite shows the evolution of the deepening east coast cyclone. The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) – R Series is a collaborative development and acquisition effort between NOAA and NASA. The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) – R Series is a collaborative development and acquisition effort between NOAA and NASA. The GOES-16 (GOES-East) satellite, the first of the series, provides continuous imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth’s western hemisphere and space weather monitoring.
