Seeing Through Time with Dr. John Mather | HowStuffWorks NOW

3/04/2016: What happened in the early days of the universe? How did the first stars and galaxies form? In just a few years, we’ll find the answers to these questions and more with the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope. We spoke with Senior Project Scientist and Nobel Laureate Dr. John Mather to learn more about how the JWST works, where it’s headed, and what we hope to find when it arrives.
