    “The possibilities appear remarkable, including images of solar-system objects that would require a space probe today, views of Earth-sized exoplanets, and spectroscopic studies of the first stars and galaxies. However, Hook is more excited by the discoveries she can't predict.”

    Also, check out the links at the Astronomy magazine article. Most don't work, but the OWL link has a FAQ. I hope that this helps answer your question.
