NASA: Launching a new space telescope in 2023

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has introduced a new space telescope, which will investigate how the universe has evolved and will discover some of
life's ingredients.

Astronomers will utilise this two year long mission to collect information on more than 100 million stars in our milky way and also more than 300 million galaxies. As far as the Milky Way is concerned, it will fetch for data on organic molecules and one of the essential life forces, water. Other information to be collected by this new space telescope includes disks surrounding stars where new planets will be formed and regions where stars are born from dust and gas.
