The James Webb Space Telescope slipped into orbit around a point in space nearly a million miles from Earth Monday where it can capture light from the first stars and galaxies to form in the aftermath of the Big Bang.
It is a civil optical remote-sensing satellite with a resolution up to the sub-meter level. The satellite can provide high-precision remote-sensing image data for industries including surveying and mapping, natural resources, emergency management, agriculture, ecological environment, residential construction and forestry.
