Creating the Future: Building JWST, what it may find, and what comes next?

Dr. John Mather: "How did we start the James Webb Space Telescope, what can it see, what might it discover? I will describe the hardware, what it was designed to observe, and speculate about the surprises it might uncover. I will also outline a possible future of space observatories: what astronomers want to build, what we need to invent, and what they might find, even the chance of discovering life on planets around other stars."

Dr. John Mather, NASA GSFC, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics (2006)
