a NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have confirmed rumors about a change in launch plans for the James Webb Space Telescope, according to reports. Ars Technica.
The telescope was originally scheduled to launch on October 31, and the two space agencies now hope to launch the new telescope in November or December, but no official date has yet been set. At best, the team behind the project hopes to have news by the end of the summer.
This delay in the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope will have several reasons. Correctly packing all components of the center in Houston, Texas, USA, for the boat trip to French Guiana as the destination (where the spaceport is located) will take longer than expected.
Likewise, this spaceport will have been exposed to operations affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, as experts try to understand how the infection could affect the project in the coming months.
