NASA's James Webb Space Telescope will give us an amazing look at the universe! It will launch in 2018.
The wrapper is off! Here is the test #JWST backplane and secondary mirror boom! This structure supports our mirrors.
After spare mirror segments are installed on test #JWST backplane, it goes to @nasa_johnson for tests in Chamber A.
The lid is off the container with #JWST's pathfinder (test) backplane! It's wrapped in black. More coverage to come!
This transport is carrying our test backplane. It'll be unpacked in @NASAGoddard's cleanroom. http://jwst.nasa.gov/webcam.html
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.
