'This will be the successor of Hubble'


News Four speaks in its weekend news of the James Webb Space Telescope, scheduled to launch in early 2019.

< div style = "text-align: justify;"> The informative piece highlights the participation of the Center for Astrobiology (CSIC-INTA) in the project with the development of two of the instruments that will be part of the telescope. It is about the MIRI and NIRSpec instruments.

The first, that speaks to us in the news Luis Colina, is the MIRI (Mid InfraRed Instrument - Instrument for the medium infrared). This instrument will detect and characterize the first galaxies and quasars as well as the chemical composition of the exoplanet atmospheres.

Santiago Arribas is in charge of talking about the other instrument, the NIRSpec, (Near InfraRed Spectrograph - Near Infrared Spectrograph), which will allow to know how distant galaxies form and evolve and study the characteristics of the exoplanets and their atmospheres.
