    James Edwin Webb was an American government official who served as the second appointed administrator of NASA during the 1960s. From 1961 to 1968, he ran the fledgling space agency and was largely responsible for its approach to the Apollo program and its success.

    Paying tribute to Webb, NASA said his initial probe launches led to “more than 75 space science missions to study the stars and galaxies, our own Sun and the as-yet unknown environment of space above the Earth’s atmosphere.”
    “Missions such as the Orbiting Solar Observatory and the Explorer series of astronomical satellites built the foundation for the most successful period of astronomical discovery in history, which continues today,” it added.
