NASA's James Webb Space Telescope will give us an amazing look at the universe! It will launch in 2018.
Updated flyer for our NASA engineering design challenge. Teachers, it's not too late to get involved!
Want to see what one of our displays at the @WorldSciFest looked like?
This structure is the OSIM. The OTE Optical Simulator. The OTE is the Optical Telescope Element (ie, the mirrors). Enough acronyms? ;-)
You can see the mirrors on the OSIM in this picture, near the middle of the image.
This structure is very cool. It acts like a telescope and is used to test the instruments.
Last but not least, the MIRI Structural Thermal Model.
Next up, the NIRSpec Engineering Test Unit.
The NIRCam Engineering Test Unit - it just arrived May 3.
