Webb space telescope launch delayed seven more months to late 2021


If NASA can hold to the existing schedule and encounters no major additional problems, officials also believe the project's existing budget will cover the costs of the delay—meaning the space agency need not return to Congress to ask for more money.

Good news!

I’m super excited about the telescope and sad to see the delay, but I prefer a late launch to a botched one. We are used to JWT delays by now too!
