James Webb Space Telescope Mirrors Will Piece Together Cosmic Puzzles: The primary mirror of NASA's James Webb Space Telescope that consists of 18 hexagonal mirrors looks like a giant puzzle piece standing in the massive clean room of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt Maryland. The telescope will help piece together puzzles scientists have been trying to solve throughout the cosmos.

The James Webb Space Telescope, a successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, is a stated priority of Canadian government astronomy funding. Other projects, astronomers say, are threatened by budget cuts.

Hubble telescope's successor should change how we see the universe - NASA expects that the Hubble Space Telescope will keep beaming back amazing data and photos for at least the next five years. But what happens after the long-running space telescope gets put out to cosmic pasture? Don't worry. NASA has a plan. By 2018, the space agency hopes to launch the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), a new instrument designed to see farther into space than ever before.
