The James Webb Space Telescope launch 2018

When this telescope becomes fully deployed and functional 1 million miles out into space, the images it takes from the very deepest depths of the Cosmos will be fucking awesome. Unlike the Hubble, (+100x more powerful!!) it is designed to capture images mostly in the infrared spectrum, and being stationed so much further out into space, and away from light interference from the Earth, Moon, and Sol, will just add to its "vision".

Simulated launch and deployment:
