Webb is an international partnership with ESA (European Space Agency) and CSA (Canadian Space Agency). The observatory launched Dec. 25, 2021, from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, followed by a months-long process to unfold into its final form in space and align its mirrors. In July, NASA and its partners released Webb’s first full-color images and the world’s most powerful space telescope began its official science mission.
