James Webb Space Telescope: What Happens after the Hubble Space Telescope?

The Hubble Space Telescope has delivered beautiful images and great results for far more years than originally planned. NASA is working on a successor, JWST, which will be launched in 2021. Many technical challenges have had to be overcome to make this telescope a reality. Many of these challenges stem from the large size of JWST and its unique architecture. The science that it promises to deliver ranges from characterizing the atmospheres of planets orbiting other stars to finding the most distant galaxies.
