James Webb Space Telescope
Making History Requires Mission Success
Northrop Grumman is proud to lead the industry team of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope — the largest, most complex and powerful space telescope ever built. Webb will fundamentally alter our understanding of the universe and we are focused on ensuring that this once unthinkable achievement becomes a reality. Webb pushes the limits of technology. We only get one chance to get it right — and we take that responsibility seriously. From putting men on the moon, to seeing the first images from Hubble, there are many great firsts in space. When Webb travels one million miles from Earth and peers back over 13.5 billion years to see the first stars and galaxies forming out of the darkness of the early universe, we will marvel at its discoveries and write the next chapter of great firsts in space. Making history requires mission success, and we are all in.
