Secrets of the Coming Webb Space Telescope

It's going to take infrared eyes to see farther back in time than even the Hubble Space Telescope, and that's what the James Webb Space Telescope's MIRI or Mid-Infrared Instrument detectors will do. Now there's a new short movie that shows what the MIRI detectors are all about and what they can do. More from NASA's JPL. The telespcope launch is planned for June 2014 aboard an ESA Ariane 5 booster rocket from the French Guiana Space Center.
