We're about to be able to see further into the past than humanity has ever seen before. The James Webb Space Telescope is the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, and it will be a hundred-times more powerful and three-times larger in size than the Hubble. This new telescope will be able to look out to the edge of the universe, and even study every phase of the history of the universe-even the ability to see the first luminous glows after the Big Bang.The Webb is slated for launch in October of 2018.
