What would the JWST be able to do or see that Hubble couldn't? What would you want it to discover. What possible things could it uncover?

It would be interesting to observe the TRAPPIST-1 galaxy in more detail. Also Tabby's Star (KIC8462852) so we can finally figure out what is causing the dimming events if not ETI. 

 

The JWST will revolutionize space observation and hopefully solve many unanswered questions, really looking forward to the launch in 2018.

Good thing the telescope is at the Goddard Space Center, not in Florida where the super-powerful Hurricane Irma is heading head first.

History will remember Trump supporters as brainwashed as*holes who voted against their own freedom, self-preservation, and right to live.

The only thing I care about is habitable planets that are within 10 light years for our species to live on.

I hope spot find some insanely* friendly aliens, then we can signal them, leading to them uplifting humanity into a space faring civilization, helping us get a unified world govt established, giving us huge amounts of scientific knowledge etc.!

 

*Insane, because the sane thing for any advanced aliens encountering humanity, would be to stop us ever leaving our solar system, or to just detonate the sun.

I just want to see if there really is a 9th planet in our solar system lurking in the Oort Cloud.


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

Could we point the telescope at earth? and what sort of resolution would we be able to get of the ground at max zoom? Could we use it as the worlds most absurdly expensive microscope?

 

I mean... we obviously shouldn't do that but i'm curious.

Or a mass relay.
