WASHINGTON, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- NASA on Tuesday chose TRW over rival Lockheed Martin to build the agency's follow-on to the Hubble Space Telescope. The newly named James Webb Space Telescope, a nod to NASA's second administrator, is being designed to look into distant space and back into time when the first stars and galaxies were formed. The observatory is slated for launch in 2010.
