Webb, a partnership of NASA, ESA, and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), is designed to answer outstanding questions about the universe and to make breakthrough discoveries in all areas of astronomy. The main ESA contributions to the mission are: NIR a tool; 50% off Mary a tool; provision of launch services; and personnel to support scientific operations. In return for these contributions, European scientists will receive a share of at least 15% of the total observing time, such as the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.
