Space telescopes don't just observe space, they’re located in space. The Hubble Telescope (1990) and the James Webb Space Telescope (2021) marked major turning points in our quest to unravel the mysteries of the universe. So just how big, how far, how powerful can the next telescopes go?

Professor Jonathan Lunine, part of the science team for the James Webb Space Telescope.
