James Webb Space Telescope will study of the ‘ice giants’

NASA’s next-generation space telescope has a blue-eyed special among its solar system observations.

The James Webb Space Telescope will soon turn its attention to two intriguing “ice giants” — Uranus and Neptune — after releasing its first operational images on July 12. Webb’s sharp eyes and deep-space location will be especially valuable in ferreting out details about these two worlds, given only a single spacecraft (Voyager 2) cruised by them briefly in the 1980s.
