SUMMARY: The most recent photos released from the Hubble Space Telescope show objects so old they might be from a time when stars in the universe were just starting to shine in significant numbers - about 13 billion years ago. These objects are at the limit of Hubble's resolving power, but the next generation James Webb Space Telescope is expected to see the entire group of proto-galaxies, and look back even further.

And when is the James Webb Space Telescope being launched? Is it expected to be launched on the back of a Shuttle or perhaps the Next Generation Vehicle, or on the back of a rocket?
