The Webb telescope

Aug 24, 2020
Do we have a date certain when this thing is going to be put into space?

I heard it is going to be able to see galaxies much further away than Hubble, but the main attraction will be that it will see galaxies in the deep field much clearer and larger than Hubble can.

The Chinese are going to include a space telescope as a component of their independent space station. China put the first module of their station into orbit in April and are moving ahead quickly. They say their new scope will be an order of magnitude more advanced than elderly Hubble.
But how will it stack up against the James Webb scope?
And which new orbiting scope will be online and producing spectacular images of the cosmos first?
