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.

To support our ad-free website, please consider donating the cost of a cup of coffee.

Thank you for helping us to continue our important work.

  • Early findings have shown multi-planet systems that have planets close together influence each other’s spin rate, and the spin rate can change dramatically throughout time. Credit: NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Inspired by the Milankovitch cycles that play a role in Earth’s climate over time, new research at Florida Tech examines how these recurring orbital movements may affect the climate of exoplanets. “Sporadic Spin-Orbit Variations in Compact Multi-planet Systems and their Influence on Exoplanet Climate,”…

  • On August 8, 2017, scientists using gravitational wave detectors in the United States and Europe picked up a new signal. This object, which became known as GW170817, became the first time that gravitational waves and electromagnetic radiation – or light – were seen from the same source. Astronomers soon classified the burst of light as a “kilonova,” resulting from the merger of some of the densest objects in the Universe. There were many telescopes that…

  • Artistic rendition of the exoplanet TOI-1452 b, a small planet that may be entirely covered in a deep ocean. Credit: Benoit Gougeon, Université de Montréal With the help of instruments designed partly in Canada, a team of astronomers has discovered an exoplanet that could be completely covered in water. An international team of scientists has announced the discovery of TOI-1452 b, an exoplanet orbiting one of two small stars in a binary system located in…
