Reporting from the 227th Meeting of the American Astronomical Society is SpaceNews.com Senior Writer Jeff Foust
on NASA‘s next big telescope project, the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST).
As you’ll see below, NASA announced last week that the wildly anticipated James Webb Telescope is half way finished and it looks like this next big project will kick off in February. This is one of many stories this week coming out of the biggest event in astronomy, and following Congress’s decision to be generous to NASA this year, we’ll be seeing more as the year continues, so bookmark SpaceNews.com and check back often.
