Who is James Webb?
James E. Webb ran NASA from February 1961 to October 1968. He believed that NASA had to strike a balance between human space flight and science. This man whose name NASA has chosen to bestow upon the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope is most commonly linked to the Apollo moon program, not to science. It is the belief of many that, as head of NASA from 1961 to 1968, he did more for science than perhaps any other government official. therefore, it is only fitting that the NGST – Next Generation Space Telescope would be named after him.
James Webb Space Telescope has cost 10 billion dollars to build, and it is to be the successor to the Hubble space observatory
