In 2019, NASA's James Webb Space Telescope will reveal the universe beyond what even Hubble can see. Webb is almost ready to join Hubble - built and tested across the US and around the world - and it will soon reveal the invisible universe of star and planetary birth, the assembly of key elements in galaxies, and first light more than 13 billion years ago.
