NASA’S GOLD TELESCOPE TO FIND “FIRST LIGHT” AND NEW PLANETS IN THE UNIVERSE
NASA has created a gold mirror that they plan to send into space. The new device has been integrated with the James Webb Telescope and will be the largest mirror to ever step “foot” in space. The goal of the expedition is to locate where the universe began and locate nebulae, exoplanets and moons throughout the Solar System.
The mirror is a part of an initiative that will test NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope after being integrated with the mirror. The primary mirror is made up of 18 smaller mirrors. It will be the biggest mirror to be sent into space.
