Deep Space Diary

Activity 4.1

The James Webb Space Telescope studies our Universe from a position in space which is 1.5 million kilometers from Earth. By comparison, the Hubble Space Telescope orbits Earth at a distance of 568 kilometers. Before solving the maze and practising their coding skills, this activity provides students with the opportunity to consider why we go to the effort and expense of sending telescopes to space, rather than just studying our Universe from Earth.
