        NASA | James Webb vs Hubble

        In this interactive activity from NASA, compare the Hubble Space Telescope and its planned successor, the James Webb Space Telescope. While both telescopes are designed to gather information that improves scientists’ understanding of stars and galaxies, they do so using different technologies and from different locations. The activity examines how differences in size, wavelength detection, and orbit affect visibility.
