+ - James Webb Space Telescope Closer to the Axe->

Submitted by

astroengine writes "This could be considered "strike two" for the deeply troubled James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). Last week, the House Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Subcommittee made the recommendation that the advanced infrared space telescope be cancelled. On Wednesday, the full House Science, Space and Technology Committee has approved the subcommittee's plan.

The project may not be dead yet — the 2012 budget still has to be voted on my the House and Senate — but it sure is looking grim for "Hubble's replacement.""
