JWST

The James Webb Space Telescope, to be launched in 2021, will be the largest telescope in space. Often regarded as the successor of the Hubble Space Telescope, is dubbed "The First Light Telescope", as it is expected to detect and characterize the first generation of galaxies and accreting supermassive black hole seeds. KICC researchers are heavily involved in the primary spectrograph of JWST, NIRSpec, which will be the first multi-object spectrograph in space, orders of magnitude more sensitive than any previous facilities.
