Preparations continue for the James Webb Space Telescope's upcoming trip to NASA Johnson for testing. Here the telescope is lifted to a stand in the giant cleanroom at NASA Goddard, so it can be rotated. The mirror's two "wings" are folded back, and its secondary mirror is stowed. This is the position the mirrors will be in for launch - as well as for the trip to Johnson Space Center.  Image credit: NASA/Chris Gunn

We had a very interesting presentation and cool tour of the James Webb Telescope project at @nasa  Really lucky to see it before it leaves Goddard and starts its journey to launch and outerspace. #space #telescope #bigbang

Released: 1990  video edit - Richie Holland  NASA's James Webb Space Telescope is the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, the most powerful infrared science observatory ever to be sent into space. From its orbit nearly a million miles from Earth, Webb will study some of the most distant objects in the universe -- but first it has to get there. Webb will be folded up inside the rocket that launches it into space, gradually unfurling as it travels to its destination beyond the Moon.

JWST: Ghosts and Mirrors Ghosts aren't actually hovering over the James Webb Space Telescope. But the lights are out as it stands with gold tinted mirror segments and support structures folded in Goddard Space Flight Center's Spacecraft Systems Development and Integration Facility clean room. Following vibration and acoustic testing bright flashlights and ultraviolet lights are played over the stationary telescope looking for contamination easier to spot in a darkened room. In the dimness…
