Dark molecular clouds become transparent in the infrared. What’s inside? http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/images/2140-sig07-005-Spitzer-Digs-Up-Hidden-Stars-in-a-Dark-Molecular-Cloud

Curious what will happen to the James Webb Space Telescope by day, hour, and minute after launch? Watch Northrop Grumman's amazing new deployment video: http://youtu.be/bTxLAGchWnA

Didn't you post this video a few months ago? What's different... other than the music?

Former James Webb Space Telescope intern and teacher Ryan Hannahoe will be talking about JWST and giving demos at Astronomy & Aerospace Day Saturday April 5 at  Museum of the Rockies, in Bozeman, Montana.  They'll have a model of JWST on display and an infrared-light detector put together by his students.

Does JWST have a Camera for the visible part of the spectrum as well?

Mike Menzel and Nobel Laureate Dr. John Mather joined Saylor Academy in a Google+ Hangout about Systems Engineering - how complex space missions like the James Webb Space Telescope stay on track and work well together.

You can watch it out YouTube: Hangout on Air with Dr. John Mather and Mike Menzel of the James Webb Space Telescope Project

The heart of the James Webb Space Telescope is complete with the final instrument installations. New feature article with two brand new videos:

So, what's going on our James Webb Space Telescope cleanroom webcam right now?

http://jwst.nasa.gov/webcam.html

In this frame (see attached pic) - there are two things. Near center is a latticed black structure with scaffolding structure around it and shiny things inside it. This is the flight instrument module (called the ISIM) - and inside it are all four of our flight instruments!  

On the left side is the IEC - the ISIM Electronics Compartment.  This is essentially the hot stuff that goes on the cold side of the telescope.  Among other things, it holds the instruments focal plane electronics and control electronics boxes which need to be in reasonably close proximity to the instruments themselves.  

Other ISIM electronics reside in the spacecraft bus - the hot stuff on the hot side of the telescope.

All about the next generation James Webb Space Telescope!
Introduction

The James Webb Space Telescope is the successor to Hubble. It is an infrared telescope with a 6.5m mirror and a sunshade the size of a regulation tennis court! It will launch in 2018.
