Into the Unknown tells the story of the building of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope – a revolutionary observatory, 100 times more powerful and the scientific successor to the Hubble Telescope. Launching in late 2018, Webb will reveal a universe we have never seen before and is poised to answer questions that have intrigued us for thousands of years: How did the universe begin? Where did we come from? Are we alone? Armed with dynamic scenes of construction, fascinating conversations with scientists and engineers and stunning visuals, Into the Unknown offers an in-depth look at one of the most daring scientific missions ever attempted. A story for all ages, this film captures the wonder of the cosmos and the timeless human desire to understand our place within the universe.
The Northrop Grumman Foundation, in partnership with filmmaker Nathaniel Kahn, developed this documentary as a resource for teachers, students and space enthusiasts around the world to enjoy.

if you do find life out there,you wouldn't be happy.then you would ask,how did it come about,where did it come from, is there more out there,and on and on, to spare no expense to tax payers. what if the life you find, doesn't want to be found, or is intelligent enough to hide from humans? or maybe it won't be willing to share the universe, or want us to have life any longer. I'm just curious.

So JW can only see in Infra-red? No nice real color images like Hubble?

20 years ago we thought we were really special, the only life to habit the universe, it took a really advanced telescope to show the universe is filled with life.

Science works in metric. Liberia, Burma and the United States work in Imperial.
