MIRI MIRI on the wall
May 10, 2012 |
I love looking at the colourful images of deep space we get from the Hubble telescope. But pretty soon we can expect an even more amazing telescope in space to show us things we’ve never seen before.
UK engineers have completed one of the instruments for the James Webb Space Telescope which will be launched in 2018. They call it MIRI, which stands for Mid-Infrared Instrument. It will show us images of the very first stars, which are over 13 billion years old.
