Breaking news! Yes, a lot of news comes from the launch of the James Webb Telescope and not from one, but from all the media publications in the world. Instead, we need to be realistic and see what the real information is. We have the latest news from NASA data on the beginning of the James Webb Telescope mission. According to news reports, he was released a few hours ago. So, in less than a day, it started to surprise us. 

NASA data show that the James Webb Telescope is already more than 60,000 miles away from Earth, which means somewhere more than 96,000 km. away from Earth. In addition, the data show that the James Webb Telescope has completed almost 7% of its way. Most likely, by the time you read this, Webb has passed 70,000 miles away from Earth and is approaching 7.5-8% of its way. This data means that Webb can be seen very hard from Earth, only with specialized telescopes. 

Only in 30 days will Webb complete his journey and finally be able to begin his mission by sending fabulous space images. Also, NASA data on speed show that it is constant with small fluctuations, staying somewhere around 1.73 miles per second (2.79 km per hour). NASA data also says that only in 1-2 the temperature that Webb feels will be able to be shown.
