It’s been more than 25 years since Hubble Space Telescope was launched into low earth orbit, where it continues to operate alongside the more youthful Kepler Space Observatory to this day. These pioneering space telescopes have provided us vast amounts of information about our solar system and the universe at large, but we are long overdue for an upgrade. Here, in this infographic by Futurism, are four planned telescopes that will knock the galactic socks off Hubble and Kepler.
