Hubble Telescope Replacement: The James Webb Space Telescope

Last week we did a story on the Hubble telescope and the upcoming and final servicing mission to fix it up. The James Webb Space Telescope was mentioned, but not many details were given. This video found on the NASA site shows what is new with JWST, why it is better than the Hubble and a bit of what we can expect. The telescope is still being built and it is possible it will be delayed a bit, but JWST is scheduled to fly no earlier than 2013, so we have a bit of time to admire the images from Hubble a bit longer.
