Eight new galleries will make their debuts in October at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in D.C., the museum said. 

All visitors, whether you are an "air head" or "space case" as the museum puts it, can return to the museum on October 14 with free timed-entry passes, according to the National Air and Space Museum's website.

Some of the eight galleries include "Destination Moon", "Nation of Speed", "Early Flight", and many more, the museum reported. 

The museum said the free time-entry passes will be available for reservation September 14.

How much does the James Webb Space Telescope cost? Nasa paid mind-blowing amount for best images of universe

NASA'S James Webb Space Telescope is one of the most expensive pieces of machinery ever created – here's how much it costs.

On December 25, 2021, Nasa launched its James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) into deep space.

The powerful instrument is the largest optical telescope currently in space – and the most expensive.

How much does Webb cost?

James Webb is costing Nasa around $10 billion over 24 years, according to The Planetary Society.

From that amount, nearly $9 billion was allocated to spacecraft development from 2003 to 2021.

The remaining $861 million has been put aside for supporting five years of operations.

However, that's just Nasa's costs – the European Space Agency provided an Ariane 5 launch vehicle and two of the four science instruments which totaled €700 million (or $711 million).

And the Canadian Space Agency offered an additional $200 million CA for sensors.

These figures mean that JWST Webb is not only the most expensive telescope ever but one of the most expensive pieces of machinery in history.

For context, the Hubble Space Telescope set Nasa back by $1.5 billion, while the Large Hadron Collider at CERN cost around $4.75 billion.

The James Webb Space Telescope

JWST currently orbits Earth-sun Lagrange Point 2 (L2), which is about 930,000 miles from Earth in the direction of Mars.

There, the telescope scours the night sky for faint infrared light, which could be visible from the first generation of stars and galaxies.

The telescope, which has been dubbed the "next Hubble", will help researchers get a better understanding of the early days of our universe – much like the legendary Hubble Space Telescope has.

Also on the agenda for the instrument is to investigate rocky 'super-Earth' exoplanets, such as 55 Cancri e and LHS 3844 b.

Super-Earths are a class of outer-solar system planets with a mass higher than Earth's but substantially lower than Uranus' and Neptune's, which are 14.5 and 17 times Earth's, respectively.

These types of planets are of interest to researchers because they don't exist in our solar system and can offer new perspectives on Earth-like planets.
