NASA's James Webb Space Telescope will give us an amazing look at the universe! It will launch in 2018.
10 minutes until @makercamp's G+ hangout! https://t.co/P5MZl7TpIm Behind the scenes @NASAGoddard:
After inspection, the #JWST mirror segments were very carefully lifted by crane to the balcony @NASAGoddard!
A short video close-up to the #JWST flight mirror inspection that happened @NASAGoddard's cleanroom yesterday:
Another #JWST flight mirror is being inspected now! http://jwst.nasa.gov/webcam.html This vid was taken earlier:
The lid is on the #JWST flight mirror can, but they will be opening another later today! http://jwst.nasa.gov/webcam.html
They are inspecting a #JWST flight mirror NOW! Watch: http://jwst.nasa.gov/webcam.html
#JWST's NIRCam optical module is wheeled to the cleanroom @NASAGoddard in this new image from its recent arrival.
#JWST's NIRCam optical module arrived @NASA Goddard on Saturday! NIRCam is an IR imager. More http://bit.ly/cGRpBP

Which #JWST mirrors are @NASAGoddard now? 9 flight primary mirror segments + secondary, tertiary, & fine steering!
Our winning @RWIWChallenge team with @NASAGoddard Center Director Chris Scolese. #STEM http://go.nasa.gov/ZsZPe7
The students who won our #STEM @RWIWchallenge were @NASAGoddard yesterday to present their work to the #JWST team.
In our cleanroom now! That's the ISIM structure; it will hold #JWST's instruments. http://go.nasa.gov/RRylNh
Nobel Laureate John Mather answers questions about #JWST at #SXSW in front of @northropgrumman's full-scale model.
The full-scale @northropgrumman #JWST model is impressive, even in the rain! Come on by (near the Long Center). #SXSW
Different infrared wavelengths give us different views! Here is the Whirlpool galaxy in near, mid, and far IR.
Up goes the #JWST flight primary mirror segment onto the balcony!
Time for the mirror to be covered again! This is #3 of 18 total #JWST primary mirror segments to arrive @NASAGoddard.
