    “It’s super capacity”
    Its super capacity…..
    “It is probably the largest space telescope assembled in the history of telescopes.”
    Well is it or isn’t it? There aren’t so many space telescopes in our history that it’s difficult to find out, definitively, whether it is the largest or not. This is very lazy reporting. For the record, yes it WILL be the largest space telescope.

      The super-telescopes of the past like Kepler and Hubble have given us prolific knowledge about space through lengths once deemed unimaginable. Observing various distant galaxies, mapping the observable universe, study of dark matter and dark energy, estimating the age of the universe, and observing the big bang aftermath are few among the many path-breaking work led by observations from these telescopes. The profundity in our space knowledge depended on the tech we could use to observe cosmic events and record them. Talking about the size and tech used behind constructing the JWST is evident of how far we have reached in our research and how far ahead we are willing to go. The main purpose of the article is to throw some light on how this telescope will steer the future of astronomical research in a whole advanced direction and make the understanding and questioning of existing cosmic observations even more intense. The ‘super-capacity’ aims to stress on that factor.
      Over 100 telescopes have been used globally for astronomical research (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_space_telescopes). But the JWST will open a whole new frontier of comprehending space science.
