Today is the desired day! We’ve already said, we’re very glad we have some new science. NASA says the Hubble Space Telescope team has made an unprecedented discovery and will be announced on Wednesday, March 30.. The legendary Hubble has been exploring the universe for nearly 32 years and now we have a cosmic discovery, what could he have seen?
Where and when to see it?
NASA will provide live or recorded interviews (enter the official NASA channel by clicking here). A record number for books. On Wednesday, March 30 at 11:00 a.m. EDT, NASA officials will announce an exciting new observation from the Hubble Space Telescope.
Space Frontier tweeted the times of the event in different regions. You can go in and search for your flag and the time will appear next to it.

According to the statementWith the recently launched James Webb Space Telescope, this new discovery will expand our understanding of the universe, as well as create a new line of future research. This is really amazing! We’re talking about the most powerful telescope in history starting a complementary mission with Hubble much sooner than previously thought.
We know you don’t want to miss it and want to find out as soon as possible. Well, we are all looking forward to it. News will appear (as soon as it is available) In the astronomy departmentUpdates will also be posted continuously on our . accounts Twitter And the Facebook.
What are the missions of Hubble and James Webb?
mentioned teach me science Above: Hubble (HST, Hubble Space Telescope) is the most famous, and perhaps the most successful, space observatory of all time. The 11-ton telescope was placed in a 570 km orbit around Earth by the space shuttle in April 1990. It has made countless discoveries and thousands of articles have been published thanks to that data.
Unlike Hubble, James Webb was launched in December 2021 and orbits the Sun 1.5 million km from Earth, at a place called the Second Lagrangian Point. There, far from the interference of light from the Earth and the Moon, he will focus his attention on the early universe, on the atmospheres of exoplanets and on other sciences.
Another difference is that it is designed to see infrared light, light that is outside the visible spectrum, and outside of what we can see with our human eyes. Infrared wavelengths penetrate dust more easily, allowing you to see more clearly; In addition, it allows scientists to go back in time thanks to a phenomenon called redshift. Its folding mirror is about 6.5 meters in diameter, which is about a Hubble triple aperture of 2.4 meters.
The James Webb Space Telescope, also known as Webb or JWST, is an international program led by NASA and its partners, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Canadian Space Agency. It was developed thanks to the work of more than a thousand scientists from all over the world, for more than two decades during which a series of difficulties had to be overcome. The effort was worth it, as Webb is now the world’s premier space science observatory.
