The world's most advanced space telescope, which NASA plans to launch late next year, is to undergo another important test - this time in a chamber capable of creating deep-space temperatures. VOA's George Putic reports that being able to function in extremely cold conditions will enable the telescope to go back in time and see how the first planets formed billions of years ago.
