What is the difference between SpaceX Starship and NASA’s Artemis 3?
NASA will use the Block 1 crew variant for Artemis 3. The Starship, on the other hand, touts the ability to send over 100 tons (220,000 pounds) to low-Earth orbit and 21 tons to geostationary transfer orbit. SpaceX claims the Starship needs to refuel in orbit to send payloads to the Moon, at which point it can send over 100 tons (220,000 pounds).

What will we observe with Webb?
Webb observations will seek dusty galaxies from the first billion years of the universe. With the completion of its latest series of milestone tests, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has now survived all of the harsh conditions associated with a rocket launch to space. Researchers will study four nearby merging galaxies in unprecedented detail.
What will James Webb Space Telescope find?
More on the Webb Telescope. The James Webb Space Telescope will find the first galaxies that formed in the early universe and peer through dusty clouds to see stars forming planetary systems. Learn more from the mission’s project website.
