After 20 years of contentious development, the main elements of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope are finally complete. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/G5RXGs

So 8.8 billion dollars cost to build the telescope, if at some point the telescope requires maintenance Nasa won;t be able to fix it cause its too far in space. very smart

So the European Space agency is somewhat involved in this project? If that's the case, i think this telescope will just crash into Mars.

It only costs 8.8 billion over the course of a couple decades? That's pretty cheap compared to fossil fuel subsidies and defense spending over the course of a single year.
