▻ About Privateer
Privateer is creating the data infrastructure that will enable sustainable growth for the new space economy.

Privateer’s proprietary knowledge graph technology offers much-needed enhancements to how they collect and process information about space objects. Even as orbital highways become more congested, this data and the applications built on it will allow space operators to maneuver safely and effectively.

The first of many apps to be built on Privateer’s data engine is Wayfinder: an open-access and near real-time visualization of satellites and debris in Earth orbit.

James Webb Space Telescope – Looking back in time – Interview with Lee Feinberg

What will the James Webb Space Telescope discover? Will it be able to detect alien life? How does it compare to Hubble?

Find out in this interview with Lee Feinberg, JWST’s Optical Telescope Element Manager.

Lee Feinberg has been the Optical Telescope Element Manager for the James Webb Space Telescope at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center for the past 20 years. Lee led the telescope technology development and led the telescope from architecture trades and design activities to manufacturing through integration and testing. He was also a member of the optics team that determined the optical prescription to correct the Hubble Space Telescope and performed independent testing of the mirrors that corrected Hubble.

The James Webb Space Telescope (sometimes called JWST or Webb) is an orbiting infrared observatory that will complement and extend the discoveries of the Hubble Space Telescope, with longer wavelength coverage and greatly improved sensitivity. The longer wavelengths enable Webb to look much closer to the beginning of time and to hunt for the unobserved formation of the first galaxies, as well as to look inside dust clouds where stars and planetary systems are forming today.
