(NASA) – The launch of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, the premier space science observatory for the next decade and an international partnership with the ESA and Canadian Space Agency, is targeted for launch Dec. 18.

ESA will provide launch services for the mission as Webb will launch on an Arianespace Ariane 5 rocket from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, on the northeastern coast of South America.

The Webb Space Telescope will explore every phase of cosmic history – from within our solar system to the most distant observable galaxies in the early universe and everything in between.

Webb will reveal new and unexpected discoveries and help humanity understand the origins of the universe and our place in it.
