Our Mission

At James Webb News, our mission is to fight fake news and provide accurate information about the latest discoveries in space science.

We gather breaking news from official sources around the world, including space agencies such as NASA and ESA, leading universities with departments related to space science, and official telescope and radio telescope websites.

By reading James Webb News, you can stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the field without having to visit multiple websites.
