Out of our 4 science instruments, Webb’s Mid-Infrared Instrument is 2nd to be declared ready for science! Developed by NASA and ESA

MIRI is designed to observe the redshifted light of distant galaxies, newly forming stars, and faintly visible comets as well as objects in the Kuiper Belt. 

It has both a camera and a spectrograph to provide wide-field, broadband imaging and new physical details of the distant objects they will observe during the mission.

With MIRI postlaunch commissioning activities concluded, the mission team will now continue to focus on checking off the remaining two modes on its other instruments.

The James Webb Space Telescope is the world's largest and most powerful space telescope.

It will solve mysteries in our solar system, look beyond distant worlds around other stars

Webb will release its first images. What do you think it will discover?
