JWST to miss March 2021 launch date
Posted: Sat, Jun 13, 2020, 9:26 AM ET (1326 GMT)
James Webb Space Telescope (NASA) NASA confirmed Wednesday that the James Webb Space Telescope won't launch as planned next March because of the coronavirus pandemic. At a meeting Wednesday, Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA associate administrator for science, said JWST "absolutely" won't be able to meet that March 2021 launch date because of a slowdown in work during the pandemic. NASA plans to perform a schedule assessment next month to identify a new likely launch date for the flagship astrophysics mission, and Zurbuchen said he still expected the mission to launch later next year.
