A space telescope or space observatory is a telescope in outer space used to observe astronomical objects.  

At this time there are two functioning space telescopes and they are the Hubble Space Telescope which is a large space-based observatory and the James Webb Space Telescope which is the largest telescope currently in space.

The team behind NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has been selected to receive the 2023 Robert H. Goddard Memorial Trophy. This annual award honors an individual, group or program deemed by the organization to have made the most significant contribution to space activity in the previous year.
