NASA's Project Scientist for the James Webb Space Telescope John Mather speaking on the search for life beyond earth at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

For the past quarter century, the Hubble Space telescope has allowed thousands of scientists to peer deeper into space and deeper back in time than any instrument in history. But NASA is on the cusp of deploying a new tool, the James Webb Space Telescope, that it hopes will unlock even more secrets about the universe. We chat with John Mather, a Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist and the senior project scientist for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.
