After more than a two decades of development and a cost of more than $10 billion, NASA's flagship James Webb Space Telescope is finally set to launch atop an Ariane 5 rocket. This largest space telescope ever launched (its mirror is some 6.5 meters once deployed) is set to be sent to the Earth-Moon L2 Lagrange point some 1 million miles from Earth in order to observe the universe in infrared wavelengths.
