Breaking news! The James Webb Telescope, a high-performance telescope that will study the matter and energy from the Universe and many others, has not yet been launched, and NASA already has ideas for a new telescope. What telescope does NASA want to create for the future? Something no one thought about, maybe even NASA, but now anything can become possible. NASA wants to create a telescope to determine the death or birth of recent stars. How? It is not known exactly. 

NASA also wants this new telescope to study the formation of chemicals in the Milky Way, which is quite difficult. However, NASA has announced some details. The telescope will have gamma rays as announced by NASA, and the name given is: Compton Spectrometer and Imager (COSI) and is expected to be launched in 2025. Even though it is a superb mission, NASA calls it in a post: "to be launched in 2025 as NASA's latest small astrophysical mission." Since 2019, 18 telescope proposals have been submitted, only this has been admitted by researchers and scientists. 

"For more than 60 years, NASA has provided opportunities for inventive, smaller-scale missions to fill the gaps in which we are still looking for answers," said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate director of the agency's Washington Mission. He also said: "COSI will answer questions about the origin of the chemical elements in our own Milky Way galaxy, even the essential ingredients for the formation of the Earth itself." It is known that through gamma rays, NASA will also explore atoms in the Milky Way, as announced: "COSI will study the gamma rays from radioactive atoms produced when massive stars exploded to map where chemical elements formed in the Milky Way. Dairy. " 

No launch provider has been selected yet, but some say SpaceX or collaboration with ESA could be a solution, but there is no reliable data on the subject yet, so not much is known about where it will be launched. All the missions will cost $ 145 million, not including the amount and launch costs, but only the telescope and a few other low costs in various fields. NASA also announced what part of NASA will be primarily involved in this project: "NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, manages the agency's program."

We wish NASA success and are waiting for new data from the agency regarding this new telescope idea, which seems to be already underway.
