NASA is touring a full scale model of the James Webb telescope in cities around the world. NASA hopes to launch the James Webb telescope into space in 2018. The telescope will operate mainly in the infrared portion of the spectrum and should be able to see very early galaxies in the universe. It should also be able to see through dusty regions of the Milky Way to make it easier to view stars with forming planetary systems. The James Webb telescope is named for the NASA administrator who developed the Apollo program.
