Soon there will be two new telescopes in space!

I'm especially excited about Herschel and JWST.&nbsp; We already have a couple proposal ideas thought up for both of them.&nbsp; When used in conjunction, you can say a lot about the process of star formation by studying the infrared absorption and millimetre emission of the dust.&nbsp; I'm sure they will give the community a few big surprises, since the process is still not very well understood. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

It will be at the L2 point about 1.5 million km from earth, opposite the sun (out toward Mars) There is only 1 other current spacecraft out there (WMAP).</p><p>Of course, as with any spacecraft, meteoroids are always a very low level threat.</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#000080"><em><font color="#000000">But the Krell forgot one thing John.
