James Webb Space Telescope - Wikipedia
The observatory is due to be launched no earlier than June 2014 and is currently scheduled to be launched by an Ariane 5 from Guiana Space Centre Kourou, French Guiana, into an L2 orbit with a launch mass of approximately 6.2 tons. After a commissioning period of approximately six months, the observatory will begin the science mission, which is expected to last a minimum of five years.

(I don't know why I left "Space" out of its name twice...)
