A Micrometeoroid Strikes NASA's New Space Telescope.

The space agency says that the telescope should still do great science

James Webb Space Telescope was hit by a larger-than-expected micrometeoroid in May

Because of the impact, the mission team will have to fix the damage caused by the strike

The James Webb Space Telescope, or JWST, is NASA's next-generation space telescope. It is very powerful

Since its launch, at least four different micrometeoroids have hit JWST

Usually, a micrometeoroid is a small piece of an asteroid that is smaller than a grain of sand

NASA says that the strike, which happened between May 23 and May 25, has had a "slight effect on the data."

NASA expects JWST to be impacted by space particles over its lifespan; fast-moving rocks are a feature of deep space
