NASA’s revolutionary seven-ton James Webb Space Telescope is now peering deep into the universe to solve some of astronomy’s greatest mysteries. And this month, NOVA’s Ultimate Space Telescope follows the ups and downs of this complex mission through the eyes of team members— some of whom have spent decades getting the telescope off the ground.

Watch Ultimate Space Telescope on NOVA, tonight at 9pm on GBH 2.
